WIP Big Eye Goddess Betta Fish Art Original Painting Work in Progress + June Sketches, Sketch 9, Duckling...



In this original acrylic work in progress WIP painting of a big eye goddess and a betta fish I've been working on the background.  I'm a couple of layers in, but I'm not sure if I'm ready to move forward or not; although it is less bright than my first layer, I'm not sure if it still isn't too bright.  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.

I'm joining in this week with Paint Party Friday.  To see more participants, please visit:

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


Here is a sketch of a duckling.  I love ducks and I thought this little bird was so very cute.  I'm unsure if I'll paint it or not, but I did enjoy sketching it.

edit:  Coincidentally, it's Donald Duck's birthday today!  Happy birthday Donald Duck.


I've decided to try and do a sketch a day in June.  This is day 9.

This is a rough sketch.

Thanks so very much Gillena, Valerie, Christine, SHON, Linda, Jan, Martin, Elke, and Neesie! SHON, I don't manage to paint every sketch, unfortunately I'm not fast enough. Some sketches are destined to remain just sketches...
