WIP Big Eye Snow White Waterlily Art Original Painting Work in Progress + May Sketches, Sketch 5, Rose... Happy Cinco de Mayo!


Happy Cinco de Mayo!


In this original work in progress WIP big eye maiden painting I've been working on her shading.  I've also added some wispies to her hair.  Next comes the flowers.  Worry not, I have not forgotten the highlights in her eyes, this time I am leaving them for last.  This fairytale angel fairy with water lilies in her hair is inspired by Snow White.

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 rosebud.  In honor of Cinco de Mayo I sketched it in red colored pencil.  I love roses so much, my grandparents had the most amazing garden with such beautiful 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 May.  This is day 5.  

This is a rough sketch.

I LOVE the Snow White inspired maiden! There is already so much in her expression and a world of hope in her eyes. It's lovely to see something "in progress" but beyond the sketch stage! The rosebud is elegant and lovely as well. ;)
