My Photograph of Pink and White Spring Flowers at Descanso Gardens + 29 Faces Sketch Art, Face 17...



I took this photograph of these pink and white flowers at Descanso Gardens a while back.  They were blooming in spring near the tulips, I'm not sure what they are called, I do think it is almost time for them to bloom here again...  They have such a delicate and yet profuse beauty.  I hope that you will enjoy this photo!


I love to paint flowers, you may see some of my finished paintings at www.lisarusso.com if you'd like.


Here is a sketch of a big eyed steampunk maiden.  She has goggles atop her head and her wings are mechanical.  I'm unsure if I'll paint her or not, but I did enjoy sketching her.  I didn't manage to finish my fairy for yesterday, but I am more hopeful that I will be able to do so for next Tuesday.  I'd like to paint faster, but I think it's important to give a painting all of the time that it needs...

She is face 24 for 29 faces in February.  The goal is to share 29 faces in the month of February.  


This is a rough sketch.

I like your rough sketch - I've been enjoying seeing all of the creative faces thus far this month. I waited too long to jump in.
