I took this photograph of white icelandic poppies at Descanso Gardens quite some time ago. I love how these flowers seem to dance and sway with the gentlest of breezes. Also I feel that their buds are just lovely. 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 gothic maiden. Her head is crowned with leaves and her eyes are closed as light filters through the forest to kiss her face. I think she is most likely a fairy angel, although she could also be an mermaid or a goddess. I'm unsure if I'll paint her or not, but I did enjoy sketching her.
She is face 3 for 29 faces in February. The goal is to share 29 faces in the month of February.
This is a rough sketch. You may see some of my finished paintings at www.lisarusso.com if you'd like.
