WIP Magician's Lionhead Bunny Rabbit Art Original Painting Work in Progress + May Sketches, Sketch 26 & 26, Flapjack Octopus & Mermaid...



In this original acrylic work in progress WIP painting I've been working on the magic hat...  I didn't get a chance to do a lot of painting this week.  I am very close to finishing my Snow White painting though.  This rabbit's name is Maximillion and the reference is courtesy of his person David Reeves Payne.  I know I've painted a quite a few bunny paintings, but I love rabbits so, I think there's always room to add another member to my fluffle...  


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 flapjack octopi.  I selected these two to refine and draw again from the four I sketched last week for some mini paintings I hope to start on soon.  One will be solo and the other octopus will be a friend to a mermaid maiden...


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

This is a rough sketch. 


Here is a sketch of a big eyed maiden.  Her long hair is flowing down around her shoulders.  I think she is most likely a mermaid, although she could also be a goddess or a fairy angel.  I'm unsure if I'll paint her or not, but I did enjoy sketching her.

Hi Lisa! I love your bunnies you have been doing lately. It's nice to see your paintings in WIP mode. Your sketches are great. Cute octupi and beautiful maiden. I love sketching at night and have gotten away from it this past week. You have inspired me to start doing that again tonight, so thank you! Happy PPF. Hugz, Rasz
