Art Sketch of a Big Eye Mermaid + Calla Lily, January 14 + 15 Daily Sketches



Here is a sketch of a big eyed maiden.  She has a sweet smile and her hair is flowing around her.  I think she is most likely a mermaid, although she could also be a goddess or a fairy angel.  I'm unsure if I'll paint her or not, but I did enjoy sketching her.


I've decided to try and do a sketch a day in January.  This is day 15.  

This is a rough sketch.  You may see some of my finished paintings at lisarusso.com if you'd like. 

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


Here is a sketch of a calla lily.  I chose an unusual angle for this sketch, I think these flowers have an elegant beauty no matter how they're looked at..  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 January.  This is from day 14.

Great sketches!!! I have challenged myself to paint at least 15 min a day in Jan. working on bigger pieces and smaller pieces so I may not finish them in a day but I've accomplished some art every day.
