WIP Chow Chow Puppy Dog Art Original Painting Work in Progress + Sketch of Little Red Riding Hood Version and a Big Eye Angel Fairy/ March 1 & 2 / Art Sketches Daily...



In this original acrylic painting of a chow chow puppy dog, I have completed the background.  Originally I'd intended to have this piece finished by the start of Chinese New Year as the zodiac animal this year is dog, however other factors delayed me.  In any case, it is year of the dog all year long, so while I'm late, I think it's still okay.  This little pup looks a bit peeved, I'm hoping to mitigate that as I proceed.  The panel that I'm painting on is 5"x7"


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 big eyed maiden.  She is inspired by the fairytale little red riding hood.  She is the third of three variations that I've sketched.  I have yet to decide which one I like the best to move forward towards refining the sketch to paint, but I am making progress.


I've decided to try and do a sketch a day in March. This is from day 1. 

This is a rough sketch.  


Here is a sketch of a big eyed gothic maiden.  Her eyes are gently closed...  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 March. This is day 2.

The pup is off to a great start. I really like this girl in the rain hat, anyway that is how I see it. Maybe because it won't stop raining here. LOL have a great weekend.
