In this original acrylic work in progress WIP painting of a flapjack octopus I've put down a layer of texture for the background and when that dried, I laid in some paint as well. Next I'll do a bit of work on his eyes and block in his base color. 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 rose. The rosebud is starting to bloom, I find the different stages of flowers beautiful. 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 July. This is day 21.
This is a rough sketch.
