WIP Mermaid & AngelFish Art Original Painting Work in Progress + February Sketches, Sketch 6, Fairy Angel



In this original acrylic work in progress WIP painting of a big eye mermaid with her angelfish friends, I have been working on her features.  I've made some progress on her eyebrows, eyelashes, and lips; but I may do a bit more with her eyelashes and lips before I move on to her hair or I may go on to hair and revisit her features later... 

This big eyed beauty is on a 16"x20" 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.

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


Here is a sketch of a big eyed gothic maiden.  She is wearing a mask, but is perhaps a bit concerned that her disguise isn't good enough...  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 February.  This is day 6.  

This is a rough sketch.  I am also participating in the February 29 Faces Challenge, this is face 6.

Love your painted maiden, I would love eyebrows like hers! The masked maiden is very clever, too. Hugs, Valerie

The masked maiden is different, she seems well disguised to me ...

All the best Jan
