Here is a sketch of a big eyed maiden. I think she has a kindness to her gaze. I think she is most likely a fairy angel, although she could also be a goddess or a mermaid. I'm unsure if I'll paint her or not, but I did enjoy sketching her. She is in my tiny sketchbook that measures 3.5x5.5 inches.
I've decided to try and do a sketch a day in December. This is day 11.
This is a sketch in colored pencils. You may see some of my finished paintings at lisarusso.com if you'd like. I'm not really a colored pencil artist but I am exploring something new for the sketchbook. I will be juxtaposing my usual rough sketches with the colored pencil sketches at varying intervals. I tend to sketch very lightly, so these and my usual pencil ones are darkened a bit in photoshop for online viewing.
I am also participating in Sunday Sketches. To view more Sunday Sketches, please visit:
