Here is a sketch of a big eyed maiden. Her eyes are gently closed and she dreams as her hair is pulled upwards by the current. 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 26.
This is a rough sketch. You may see some of my finished paintings at lisarusso.com if you'd like.
