WIP Big Eye Latina Maiden Art Original Painting Work in Progress + December Sketches, Sketch 22 + 23, Orchid + Penguin...



In this original work in progress WIP big eye maiden painting I've been working on her wings and eyes.  I'm going to try for a warm Latina skin tone for this angel fairy...

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 an orchid.  Their is such a wide variety of looks to this gorgeous type of  flower.  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 was from day 22.  

This is a rough sketch.


Here is a sketch of a penguin.  I didn't quite plan well enough when I started the sketch and I'm missing this bird's adorable feet.  I may have to try this one again another time...  I'm unsure if I'll paint her or not, but I did enjoy sketching her.
