My Photograph of White Icelandic Flowers at Descanso Gardens + 29 Faces Sketch Art, Face 3...



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.

The blossom looks like it's made of porcelain. It's lovely.

They are all so beautiful and delicate. A fine series of these pictures will be.
I'm sorry, when my language skills are poor, and I say mistakes. I hope you understand.
