My Photograph of Cherry Blossom Flowers at Descanso Gardens + March Sketches Art, Day 30, Elven Angel Fairy...



I took this photograph of cherry blossoms at Descanso Gardens this year, although I do not think the cherry blossom trees are in bloom there right now.  They are such a delicate flower with such a brief blooming perioud, but they are a favorite of mine.  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 tilted and her elf ears are peeking out...  I think she is most likely an elven angel fairy, although she could also be a mermaid or 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 March.  This is day 30.

This is a rough sketch.

beautiful blossoms, they really are so fleeting but a favourite part of spring for me. I love your fairy's eyes.

The maiden is an adorable sketch. I love Descanzo gardens - I've gone about 3 times and after reading your post - i think I'm due a visit soon.

Thanks very much Jennifer, Christine, and Sandy! I love Descanso Gardens, at this point I think the cherry blossoms are no longer in bloom, but the roses are starting to hit their stride...
