Here is a sketch of a big eyed maiden. She has a wary and cautious gaze and her hair is piled high upon her head. I think she is most likely an angel fairy, although she could also be a mermaid or a goddess. I'm unsure if I'll paint her or not, but I did enjoy sketching her.
I've decided to try and do a sketch a day in February. This is day 18. We had a power outage yesterday that lasted from 4:30 p.m. to 11:45 p.m., I hadn't decided if I was going to sketch by candle light or not; I was very glad when the power came back on!
This is a rough sketch. You may see some of my finished paintings at lisarusso.com if you'd like. I am also participating in the February 29 Faces Challenge, this is face 18.
