WIP Big Eye Ghost Art Original Painting Work in Progress + October Sketches, Sketch 11, 12, & 13/ Big Eye Goddess, Angel, & Mermaid...



In this original acrylic work in progress WIP painting of a big eye ghost, I've blocked in her face.  I've started on her shading, but I still have a ways to go...  She is inspired by an African American folktale.

This big eyed beauty is on a 16"x20" canvas in acrylics.   


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 gothic maiden.  She has a look of intensity...  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.


I've decided to try and do a sketch a day in October. This is from day 11. 

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 41. 

This is a rough sketch. 


Here is a sketch of a big eyed maiden.  She has wild inspired hair and an expression of sweetness...  I think she is most likely an angel fairy, 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.
