In this original acrylic work in progress WIP painting of a big eye goddess and a betta fish I've painted her features and her dress. I still have a little more work to do on her dress before I move on to her hair... 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 iris. Irises are one of my favorite flowers, I can't seem to grow them in my garden, but I love seeing them when I visit the Huntington and Descanso Gardens. 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 17.
This is a rough sketch.
