In this original 8"x10" work in progress WIP oil painting of an iris, I'm almost done with this painting. It's a bearded iris so I need to add the beard, some minor details, and a little bit of glazing. I think this piece has a bold feeling to it...
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 maiden. She is adorned with jewels and has a gentle gaze... I think she is most likely a goddess, although she could also be an angel fairy or a mermaid. 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 March. This is day 27.
This is a rough sketch.
