WIP Big Eye Orchid Angel Fairy Art Original Painting Work in Progress + October Sketches, Sketch 21 & 22/ Big Eye Goddess & Angel...



In this original acrylic work in progress WIP painting of a big eye orchid angel fairy, I've been working on her shading and also her features.  I still have a bit more work to do on her shading and lips.  There is some gold leaf in the background.  She is part of my garden guardian series.

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.

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


Here is a sketch of a big eyed maiden.  She seems to be almost give voice to a question...  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 21. 

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 51. 

This is a rough sketch.

Lisa it has been too long since I dropped by!! What I love most about your blog is getting to see the work as it grows from the original sketches to finished pieces. First I love the idea of the Garden Guardians series! The Orchid Angel's face is just striking! So much life there in her eyes and her expression. I's wagering she's also a guardian not to be crossed! lol

And your new sketches offer a peek at the angels and fairies yet to be. . . always a pleasure and even more of an inspiration to come by and sit with your creations. I won't let so much time go by again. :) THANK YOU!
