WIP Big Eye Fairy Angel Water Lily Art Original Painting Work in Progress + April Sketches / Sketch 13 + 14 / Calla Lily & Arctic Fox...



In this original work in progress WIP big eye maiden painting I've been working on her hair.  This is just an underpainting, her hair will be much darker when I'm done and will also have some highlights...  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 calla lily.  I love the elegant form of calla lilies, they are one of my favorite flowers.  Although I seem to have a lot of favorites, flowers are so lovely.  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 April.  This is from day 13.  

This is a rough sketch. 


Here is a sketch of an arctic fox.  I think he has such a sweet expression.  I'm unsure if I'll paint him or not, but I did enjoy sketching him.
