Goddess Athena Sketch Art, 29 Faces Face 22 + Little Bo Peep Wishes you Happy Chinese New Year...



Here is a rough sketch that I did of a big eye goddess Athena (known to the Romans as Minerva).  I'd like to paint her, although she definitely needs a more refined redraw.  I want to do a series of large goddess paintings as well as smaller counterpart versions.  This would be for one of the smaller versions.  She is face 22 for the 29 faces challenge in February.  For 29 Faces, the challenge is to share 29 faces in the month of February...


I am also participating in Sunday Sketches.  To view more Sunday Sketches, please visit:

Alex reminded me that I painted Little Bo Peep and she'd like to wish you a Happy Chinese New Year!  She's lost her sheep, but they will return.  Chinese New Year celebrations last for 15 days!  We're going to try to go to dim sum to celebrate...
