WIP Big Eye Fairy Angel Water Lily Art Original Painting Work in Progress + March Sketches / Sketch 23 + 24 / Tulips & Panda Bear...



In this original work in progress WIP big eye maiden painting I'm working on her skin tones.  I still have more layers on her face to go before I move on to her eyebrows, eyelashes, and lips...  This fairytale angel fairy with water lilies in her hair will be Snow White when she's complete.

This big eyed beauty is on an 8"x10" 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.

I'm joining in this week with Paint Party Friday.  To see more participants, please visit:

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


Here is a sketch of a couple of tulips.  This time of year I seem to have flowers on the mind...  These may be for the hair of a maiden, I still need to sketch quite 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 23.  

This is a rough sketch.


Here is a sketch of a panda bear.  I've never sketched one before, I think pandas are so cute and it was fun to try an animal I hadn't tried before...  I'm unsure if I'll paint him or not, but I did enjoy sketching him.
