WIP Big Eye Ghost Art Original Painting Work in Progress + October Sketches, Sketch 1 & 2, Big Eye Mermaid & Goddess...



In this original acrylic work in progress WIP painting of a big eye ghost, I've blocked in her background and started on her eyes. I still have more to do on her eyes before I move forward, I dreamt last night about painting them...  She is inspired by an African American folktale.

This big eyed beauty is on a 16"x20" canvas in acrylics.  I've been mainly focused on smaller works, this is my first large painting in quite some time.  


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 a bit of a sultry look...  I think she is most likely a mermaid, although she could also be a fairy angel 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 October. This is from day 1. 

I would like to try to reach a goal of 100 faces sketched on consecutive days, I started this effort on September 1st, 2017...  This is face 31. 

This is a rough sketch. 


Here is a sketch of a big eyed gothic maiden.  She has a look of strength...  I think she is most likely a goddess, although she could also be a fairy angel or a goddess.  I'm unsure if I'll paint her or not, but I did enjoy sketching her.
