WIP Peacock Bird Art Original Painting Work in Progress + Sketches, Sketch 28 & 29, Big Eye Fairy & Angel...



In this original acrylic painting of a peacock, I've laid in the background behind the feathers.  It looks like black here, but it's actually a very dark green with some blues.  Next I'll start with the gold leaf, peacocks are birds of many feathers...  The canvas that I'm painting on is 11"x14" 


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 maiden.  She wears a crown and an expression of caring concern.  I think she is most likely a fairy angel, although she could also be a mermaid or a goddess.  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 September. This is from day 28. 

I am also participating in the September 29 Faces Challenge! The goal is to share 29 faces in the month of September.  I think I will try to extend it out to a goal of 100 faces sketched on consecutive days...

This is a rough sketch.
