WIP Betta Fish Art Original Painting Work in Progress + June Sketches, Sketch 12, Big Eye Angel Fairy...



In this original acrylic work in progress WIP painting of a betta fish I've made the background a little darker.  I've also started on his stylized fins, they take a very steady hand and will take a bit longer before I have them all blocked in...  The panel that I'm painting on is 4"x4"...  


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.

=============================================


Here is a sketch of a big eyed maiden.  She has her hair pulled back in a sweet ponytail and a soft smile.  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 12.

This is a rough sketch.
