WIP Marigold Flower Art Original Painting Work in Progress + Sketches of Big Eye Angels Fairies Maidens & Flowers / August 25-31 / Art Sketch Daily...


For the month of August I will be offering a free random rough sketch included with any original art order on my website lisarusso.com!  I plan on making some adjustments in pricing and content on my website, so now is an excellent time to take a look...


In this original acrylic work in progress WIP painting of a marigold I've completed the background.  I've spent some time painting the stems and I've done an underpainting of the flower itself.  I'm going to glaze some orange over the underpainting and go from there.  This is a very ornate flower and I find myself enjoying the details, which I'm very glad of as there will be two in the hair of my Dia de los Muertos / Day of the Dead maiden that I hope to begin painting soon...  

This lovely flower is on a 7"x5" panel in acrylics.  


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:

August 25-31 Sketches


Here is a sketch of a big eyed maiden.  She has a very fashionable eye patch...  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 August.  This is from day 25.  

This is a rough sketch. 


Here is a sketch of a zinnea.  They are a charming flower...  I'm unsure if I'll paint this sketch or not, but I did enjoy sketching it.
