WIP Big Eye Goddess Betta Fish Art Original Painting Work in Progress + July Sketches, Sketch 3, Orchid Flower...



In this original acrylic work in progress WIP painting of a big eye goddess and a betta fish I've been working on her skin tones.  I'm debating on if I should work on her dress next or her features.  I am leaning towards her dress...  I think I am going to save the highlights in her eyes until last again.  The panel that I'm painting on is 4"x4"...  


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 an orchid flower.  This is from a more conventional angle than yesterday's, I think it still has a unique beauty.  I'm unsure if I'll paint it or not, but I did enjoy sketching it. 


I've decided to try and do a sketch a day in July.  This is day 3.  

This is a rough sketch.
