WIP Anemone Flowers Floral Art Original Painting Work in Progress + June Sketches / Daily Sketch 2 / Angel Fairy...



In this original 8"x10" work in progress WIP oil painting of two anemone flowers, I'm a couple of layers into the background.  I need to do a couple of minor touch ups before I begin on the flowers.  I photographed my reference for these beauties at Huntington Gardens...


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 big eyed gothic maiden.  She also has roses in her hair, I think I just have roses on the mind.  I think she is most likely an angel fairy, although she could also be a goddess or a mermaid.  I'm unsure if I'll paint her or not, but I did enjoy sketching her...


I've decided to try and do a sketch a day in June.  This is day 2.

This is a rough sketch.

You create so much art that I can't imagine how you do it. I love these two sketches and can't wait to see them finished.

Thank you for your sweet and thoughtful words! I'm not sure that I'm taking the maiden any further, but I do plan on working more on the anemone flowers.
