WIP Peacock Bird Art Original Painting Work in Progress + Sketches of Big Eye Angels Fairies Mermaids Goddesses & Flowers / June 20-29 / Art Sketch Daily...



In this original acrylic painting of a peacock, I've been working on the feathers.  I've been doing some details as well as blocking in the portion that will have more mermaid feather details as I go forwards.  I may do a blue wash on the green later, but I want to put in more details before I decide...  I'll eventually do highlights with the gold leafing paint near the very end of the painting.  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:

June 20-29 Sketches

This is a bit of a large group, sometimes I fall behind in scanning them in, but so far I have been consistent in sketching daily.  It's something I really enjoy, these are just rough sketches, but I hope that you will enjoy them.



Here is a sketch of a big eyed maiden.  She is gazing upwards...  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.
