Sketch of Big Eye Fairy Angel, Art Sketches Daily, December 11 Sketchbook



Here is a sketch of a big eyed maiden.  I think she has a kindness to her gaze.  I think she is most likely a fairy angel, although she could also be a goddess or a mermaid.  I'm unsure if I'll paint her or not, but I did enjoy sketching her.   She is in my tiny sketchbook that measures 3.5x5.5 inches.


I've decided to try and do a sketch a day in December.  This is day 11.

This is a sketch in colored pencils.  You may see some of my finished paintings at lisarusso.com if you'd like.  I'm not really a colored pencil artist but I am exploring something new for the sketchbook.  I will be juxtaposing my usual rough sketches with the colored pencil sketches at varying intervals.  I tend to sketch very lightly, so these and my usual pencil ones are darkened a bit in photoshop for online viewing.  

I am also participating in Sunday Sketches.  To view more Sunday Sketches, please visit:

This maiden is so real.

A sketch a day in December is ambitious, so many ways to get derailed. Great work on the maiden.

Thanks so very much Valerie-Jael, Christine, NatureFootstep, Martin, Paula, and Jennifer! December is indeed a month that's packed, I'm definitely not managing to post daily, but I am hoping to be be able to continue to sketch daily...
