Sketch of a Big Eye Mermaid, Showy Orchids, & Angel Fairy/ January 12, 13, & 14 Art Sketches Daily...



Here is a sketch of a big eyed maiden.  She has a beguiling expression...  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 January. This is from day 12. 

This is a rough sketch.  You may see some of my finished paintings at lisarusso.com if you'd like.   


Here is a sketch of some showy orchids.  Orchid flowers have such an amazing diversity of looks...  I'm unsure if I'll paint it or not, but I did enjoy sketching it.

These are wonderful sketches Lisa!!
Lisa, you have been doing a sketch a day now, for a few years. Do you keep them in books? Just wondering what you do with them all?
Big Hugs!

Sometimes they are sad, usually not, but sometimes... Thanks for your thoughts Jennifer.

Thanks Stacy, It has been almost two years of sketching daily, I have them all over the place... Sometimes I group them into categories and try to keep the ones I might paint with their reference, but I'm a bit behind in sorting...
