WIP Big Eye Self Portrait Art Original Painting Work in Progress + November Sketches, Sketch 4 & 5, Fairy & Angel...



In this original acrylic work in progress WIP painting of an idealized big eye version of myself, I've been working on the features and the blouse.  I'm going to move on to hair, but I intend to revisit shading in the face once I've established the hair.  I think this is the mermaid version of me, MerMe, tee hee...  I'm saving the highlights in the eyes until last.

This idealized (or perhaps eye-dealized, I may be in a bit of a silly mood today) big eyed self portrait 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 has an intense elegance...  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 November. This is from day 4. 

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 65. 

This is a rough sketch.
