WIP Big Eye Latina Maiden Art Original Painting Work in Progress + December Sketches, Sketch 16, Camellia Flower...



In this original work in progress WIP big eye maiden painting I've completed her background; I love clouds.  I'm going to try for a warm Latina skin tone for this angel fairy, but I still have wings and eyes to go before I reach that point...

This big eyed beauty is on an 8"x10" canvas in acrylics.  


This is a work in progress, but I also usually post at least one finished piece on Tuesdays if you'd like to come to visit!  You also may see some of my finished paintings at lisarusso.com if you'd like.

I'm joining in this week with Paint Party Friday.  To see more participants, please visit:

=================================================


Here is a sketch of a camellia flower.  One of the beautiful qualities of camellias is that they bloom in the winter here in California...  I'm unsure if I'll paint it or not, but I did enjoy sketching it.


I've decided to try and do a sketch a day in December.  This is day 16.  

This is a rough sketch.

Camellia's are such a lovely flower - I do like your sketch.
I just wonder what colour you would choose if you should colour it?

All the best Jan
