WIP Kitty Cat Art Original Painting Work in Progress + Sketch of Daffodil Flowers & Big Eye Angel Fairy/ January 10 & 11 / Art Sketches Daily...



In this original acrylic work in progress WIP painting of a cat I've been working on her fur.  I'm a couple of layers in.  She's a black kitty, but I feel her brown underpainting gives her more of a richness...  I'm going to finesse her details and her eyes next, but I'm not quite sure the order.  She'll also need some wiskers.  The panel that I'm painting on is 8"x10"

I usually work on more than one painting at a time, and I do have some others in the works, but this one has a deadline fast approaching...


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 daffodils.  Two of these sweet flowers are nestled together...  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 January.  This is from day 10.  

This is a rough sketch.


Here is a sketch of a big eyed maiden.  She has a look of mild trepidation...  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.  


I've decided to try and do a sketch a day in January. This day 11. 

This is a rough sketch.
