In this original acrylic work in progress WIP painting of a big eye mermaid with her angelfish friends, I've painted the base colors of the fishies. Next I'll add some shading to the fish and then I'll begin work on their fins...
This big eyed beauty is on a 16"x20" canvas in acrylics. I've been mainly focused on smaller works, this is my first large painting in quite some time. I have so many ideas for pieces, so in addition to smaller works, I hope to paint some additional larger works this year.
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.
Here is a sketch of a big eyed gothic maiden. She has a wary expression as she contemplates the mortal realm. 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 27.
This is a rough sketch. I am also participating in the February 29 Faces Challenge, this is face 28.
