WIP Big Eye Little Red Riding Hood Art Original Painting Work in Progress + Sketches of Big Eye Angels Fairies Maidens & Flowers / August 1-3 / Art Sketch Daily...


For the month of August I will be offering a free random rough sketch included with any original art order on my website lisarusso.com!  I plan on making some adjustments in pricing and content on my website, so now is an excellent time to take a look...


In this original acrylic work in progress WIP painting of a big eye little red riding hood I am working on the background.  I've done a couple of layers and I'll likely be doing a glazing layer before I move forward.  Fairytales hold a strong allure for me.  In this piece, I'm focused on her face.  I'm planning on trying to do an underpainting on her face and hood before I begin in color.  

This big eyed beauty is on an 8"x10" panel 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!

I'm joining in this week with Paint Party Friday.  To see more participants, please visit:

August 1-3 Sketches


Here is a sketch of a big eyed maiden.  She has a wary expression...  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 August. This is from day 1. 

This is a rough sketch.


Here is a sketch of two fuchsia flowers.  They have a delicate beauty...  I'm unsure if I'll paint this sketch or not, but I did enjoy sketching it. 


I've decided to try and do a sketch a day in August.  This is from day 2.  

This is a rough sketch.


Here is a sketch of a big eyed maiden.  She has a gentleness...  I think she is most likely an angel fairy, 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.
