In this original acrylic work in progress WIP painting of a big eye mermaid with her angelfish friends, I've added some shading to the fishies. I've also painted in the start of the fins, I have one more fish to go before I glaze over them. The strokes of the fins require a very steady hand, so I've needed to do them over more than one day...
This big eyed beauty is on a 16"x20" canvas in acrylics. I've been mainly focused on smaller works, this is my first large painting in quite some time.
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 tulip. Tulips bloom for such a short season, I love the transient beauty of these flowers. I'm unsure if I'll paint it or not, but I did enjoy sketching it.
I've decided to try and do a sketch a day in March. This is day 10.
This is a rough sketch.
