WIP Work in Progress View of "Fortune Smiles"
In this original wip work in progress acrylic painting of a piglet, I have finished the underpainting. This is not the completed version, but one of the steps along the way, the original completed painting is available at the Realm/Ministry of Culture Zodiac: Year of the Boar Exhibit at the Art Salon Chinatown until March 17th... The panel that I'm painted on is 7"x5" and I intend to release the prints and an image of the framed original next week. Please contact me if you'd like a preview of the finished piece, my little piggy gets more pink and nuanced in the pig's state of completion.
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:
I've still been sketching daily, but I haven't had the opportunity yet to have a scanning party, so I'll try to share them when I next post...
