WIP Anemone Flowers Art Original Painting Work in Progress + Sketches of Big Eye Fantasy Maidens & Flowers / July 7-13 / Art Sketch Daily...



In this original 8"x10" work in progress WIP oil painting of two anemone flowers, I've done some glazing as well as the flower's cores.  I still need to do a bit more glazing in the background, but I am close to completion on this painting.  I photographed my reference for these beauties at Huntington Gardens...


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:

July 7-July 13 Sketches


Here is a sketch of a dogwood blossom.  They have such a delicate appeal...  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 July.  This is from day 7.  

This is a rough sketch. 


Here is a sketch of a big eyed maiden.  She has a feeling of strength.  I think she is most likely a goddess, although she could also be a fairy angel or a mermaid.  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 July. This is from day 8. 

This is a rough sketch.


Here is a sketch of a camellia.  I don't feel I quite captured this flower, I may try this one again...  I'm unsure if I'll paint this sketch or not, but I did enjoy sketching it.

This is a rough sketch.


Here is a sketch of a big eyed maiden.  She is inspired by the fairytale little red riding hood.  This is a bonus variation.  I didn't chose this one to refine to paint, but I have chosen one and I am making progress.


I've decided to try and do a sketch a day in July. This is from day 16. 

This is a rough sketch. 


Here is a sketch of some rue anemones.  They are such sweet and pretty flowers...  I'm unsure if I'll paint this sketch or not, but I did enjoy sketching it.

Here is a sketch of a big eyed maiden.  She has long flowing hair...  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 July. This is from day 12.

Here is a sketch of a carnation and bud.  I love how long these flowers last...  I'm unsure if I'll paint this sketch or not, but I did enjoy sketching it.
