Art Sketch of a Rose & Big Eye Mermaid, March 25 + March 26 Daily Sketches #dailysketch...



Here is a sketch of a rose.  I love roses so much...  I think it may likely be for the hair of a maiden, I still need to sketch a few more though to determine which ones best suit her...


I've decided to try and do a sketch a day in March.  This is from day 25.  

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 big eyed maiden.  Her hair is swirling wildly underwater and she has a sweetness to her gaze...  I think she is most likely a mermaid, although she could also be an angel fairy or a goddess.  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 March.  This is day 26.

This is a rough sketch.

I am also participating in Sunday Sketches.  To view more Sunday Sketches, please visit:

I forgot to say, thanks again for the giveaway! Also, I think lilac roses are probably my favorites but they're all so lovely...
