WIP Chow Chow Puppy Dog Art Original Painting Work in Progress + Sketch of a Big Eye Fairy, Daffodil Flower, & Princess Leia / May 2-4 / Art Sketches Daily...



In this original acrylic painting of a chow chow puppy dog, I think the fur is where I'd like it to be.  I've blocked in the eyes and the nose; I'll begin detailing them next.  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:

May 2-4 Sketches


Here is a sketch of a big eyed maiden.  She has a cautious demeanor...  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 2. 

This is a rough sketch. 


Here is a sketch of a daffodil flower.  They are such sweet and demure flowers...  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 3.  

This is a rough sketch. 


Here is a sketch of a big eyed maiden.  She is inspired by Princess Leia from Star Wars.  I didn't have an image of her to sketch from, but her giant buns of hair are iconic.  May the 4th be with you...
