In this original acrylic work in progress WIP painting of a big eye mermaid with her angelfish friends, I've almost finished her hair. She may get an additional wispy when the fish are complete. I've started on the fishies, they are fun little sea animals. Right now I've started blocking them in, then they'll get a bit of shading. After which will come the fins, ah fins, glorious fins...
This big eyed beauty is on a 16"x20" canvas in acrylics.
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 a big eyed maiden. Her glance holds volumes and her hair is adorned with water lilies. I think she is most likely a fairy angel, 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 17.
This is a rough sketch. I am also participating in the February 29 Faces Challenge, this is face 17.
