WIP Piglet Pig Art Original Painting Work in Progress + Sketches of Big Eye Fantasy Maidens, Flowers, & Lovebirds / January 10-23 / Art Sketch Daily...



In this original wip work in progress acrylic painting of a piglet, I have laid in the background.  I am painting this pig in honor of Chinese New Year, this year it is Year of the Boar...  The panel that I'm painting on is 7"x5"


This is a work in progress, but I also post finished pieces here as well 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 a little early, but I'm going to try to join in this week with Paint Party Friday.  To see more participants, please visit:

January 10-23 Sketches

I've decided to try and do a sketch a day in January. They are all rough sketches.  I'm quite a bit behind in sharing my daily sketches, so I've grouped the images in groups so it isn't quite so overwhelming.  You may see them individually on facebook here.  You may see some of my finished paintings at lisarusso.com if you'd like.


Day 10:  Here is a sketch of an orchid.  There are so many lovely variations of this flower...
Day 11:  Here is a sketch of a big eyed maiden.  I think she has seen much of the world...  I think she is most likely an angel fairy, although she could also be a mermaid or a goddess.  
Day 12:  Here is a sketch of a geranium.  They are so vibrant and lovely... 
Day 13:  Here is a sketch of an anthurium.  They are a joy to sketch... 
Day 14:  Here is a sketch of a big eyed maiden.  She has a moodiness to her demeanor...  I think she is most likely a fairy angel, although she could also be a mermaid or a goddess. 


Day 15:  Here is a sketch of a calla lily.  There is a purity and grace to these flowers... 
Day 16:  Here is a sketch of a big eyed maiden.  She has an expression of wonder.  I think she is most likely a goddess, although she could also be a fairy angel or a mermaid.  
Day 17:  Here is a sketch of a tulip.  I love tulips... 
Day 18:  Here is a sketch of gloxinia flower.  I'm not sure if I've seen one of these in person... 
Day 19:  Here is a sketch of a hibiscus.  I love the flower's joyful quality...  


Day 20:  Here is a sketch of a daisy.  Daisies are such sweet flowers...  
Day 21:  Here is a sketch of a lovebird.  This is lovebird one of three potential lovebirds that I will decide amongst to paint.  Here I am exploring standard proportions, but I may redraw them to explore a more chibi look.  
Day 22:  Here is a sketch of a lovebird.  This is lovebird one of three potential lovebirds that I will decide amongst to paint.  Here I am exploring standard proportions, but I may redraw them to explore a more chibi look.  
Day 23:  Here is a sketch of a lovebird.  This is lovebird one of three potential lovebirds that I will decide amongst to paint.  Here I am exploring standard proportions, but I may redraw them to explore a more chibi look.

I didn't know that Chinese New Year, this year, is Year of the Boar.
I'm sure your piglet will look excellent when all finished.

Nice to see your sketches.

All the best Jan
