WIP Bantam Rooster Art Original Painting Work in Progress + January Sketches, Sketch 20, Fairy Angel...



In this original 5"x7" work in progress WIP oil painting of a bantam rooster, I've painted his eye and I've worked on his feathers.  I've put some texture medium on his crest and I will shade over that.  I may also need some more feathery accents to his wings before I'm done.  I'm hoping to have him completed for Tuesday before the start of Chinese New Year and Year of the Rooster...


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 big eyed gothic maiden.  She wears a darling hat and has a cautious 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.


I've decided to try and do a sketch a day in January.  This is day 20.  

This is a rough sketch.
