In this original acrylic work in progress WIP big eye gothic maiden painting I've done some painting on the under layers... I've applied a texture to the gravestones and painted a bit of the background as an underpainting. I'll be painting over all of this as I continue on, but it gives me a bit of a feeling of where I'm going with it.
This big eye gothic beauty is inspired by Wednesday Addams of the Addams Family and she is set in a Gothic cemetery. This is an 11"x14" painting on gallery wrapped canvas.
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 www.lisarusso.com if you'd like.

Here is a sketch of a butterfly. They seem to love clusters of flowers, watching butterflies is something I greatly love to do. I'm unsure if I'll paint it or not, but I did enjoy sketching it.
I've decided to try and do a sketch a day in July. This is day 1.
This is a rough sketch.
