In this original acrylic work in progress WIP big eye gothic maiden painting I've painted her eyes and I'm working on her blouse and neck. I still have quite a ways to go with her, but she is wonderful to paint... I think I may work on her skin tones in her face next before I paint the collar and finalize her blouse.
This big eyed gothic beauty is inspired by Wednesday Addams of the Addams Family and she is set in a 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 lisarusso.com if you'd like.
I'm joining in this week with Paint Party Friday. To see more participants, please visit:
Here is a sketch of an iris. I am working on developing this into a painting, it will be a small 8"x10" and I'll be using the oils, I still have a lot to learn about working with them, the little purple rose went well, but this will be a bit bigger.
I've decided to try and do a sketch a day in September. This is day 30. I'm considering trying Inktober, a challenge to do ink sketches for the month of October, but I may be going out of town at some point and I'm not sure if I'll be able to keep up. I may give it a try anyway, but we'll see... I've been challenging myself to sketch daily since February and I've really enjoyed it, but I may not be able to keep my challenge to myself even with rough sketches if I have to leave town...
This is a rough sketch.
