Original Angelfish Angel Fish Painting + Art Prints & ACEO Prints! May 19-23 Sketches...



"School's Out" Original 5"x7" Acrylic Painting on a Canvas Here

This week my featured painting is "School's Out," an original angelfish painting.  This angel fish is currently away from his school but will rejoin them for a larger mermaid painting this is a preliminary piece for.  The original has some interference violet shimmer seen in some angles that I've tried to capture in the image above.  The art has a lowbrow realist feel... 


Most of my art is also available on my website at lisarusso.com; however, on the first Tuesday of the month, I like to put some art prints and LE ACEO prints on ebay at a lower promotional rate for the duration of the auctions...  This #mermay month, my theme is mermaids and mermaid friends, you may see them here.

May 19-23 Sketches


Here is a sketch of a big eyed maiden.  She a look of gentle concern...  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 May. This is from day 19. 

This is a rough sketch.


Here is a sketch of some snowmound spirea flowers.  This is only a small group of a larger cluster...  I'm unsure if I'll paint this sketch or not, but I did enjoy sketching it. 


I've decided to try and do a sketch a day in May.  This is from day 20.  

This is a rough sketch.


Here is a sketch of a big eyed maiden.  She is based on the same model as day 19...  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 May. This is from day 21. 

This is a rough sketch. 


Here is a sketch of an anthurium flower.  These tropical beauties are amongst my favorites...  I'm unsure if I'll paint this or not, but I did enjoy sketching it. 


I've decided to try and do a sketch a day in May.  This is from day 22.  

This is a rough sketch.


Here is a sketch of a big eyed maiden.  She has a look of quiet intensity...  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 May. This is day 23. 

This is a rough sketch.
