In this original acrylic painting of a peacock, I've started blocking in the stems of the feathers. I put it aside for a while to work on some other deadlines, but I have resumed painting my feathery friend... I had planned on laying in gold leaf, the type that comes in pages, but instead I think I will use a paint. It isn't acrylic though, so it will likely be the last part of the feathers that I do. The canvas that I'm painting on is 11"x14"
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 joining in this week with Paint Party Friday. To see more participants, please visit:
Here is a sketch of a chow chow puppy dog. I like to paint an animal in honor of Chinese New Year annually, this year it's year of the dog. I'm intending to paint this puppy, the sketch isn't quite right yet, but it's getting there...
I've decided to try and do a sketch a day in February. This is day 23.
This is a rough sketch.
