WIP Kitty Cat Art Original Painting Work in Progress + Sketch of a Big Eye Fairy & Calla Lily Flower/ December 27 & 28 / Art Sketches Daily...



In this original acrylic work in progress WIP painting of a cat I've completed the background.  I started with the base color that I shared last week and then combined two colors on top, wet into wet.  After that I spritzed the colors with water so they combined even more.  Then I let it dry completely.  Most of the areas really worked, but on those that didn't I repeated the process.  Next I'll move on to the kitty underpainting...  The panel that I'm painting on is 8"x10"


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 a little early, but I'm going to try to join in this week with Paint Party Friday.  To see more participants, please visit:

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


Here is a sketch of a big eyed maiden.  She has a sweet mischevous quality and a dashing hat...  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 December. This is from day 27. 

This is a rough sketch. 


Here is a sketch of a calla lily.  These flowers seem bold yet delicate at once to me...  I'm unsure if I'll paint it or not, but I did enjoy sketching it. 


I've decided to try and do a sketch a day in December.  This is day 28.  

This is a rough sketch.

You did wonderful on all of your sketches in Dec. I am going to pick a drawing a day again too. It really helped my art. I really can't wait to see this cat finished. I also love the hat on your maiden. Have a very happy New Year.
