I took this photograph of this cherry blossom tree at Descanso Gardens some previous year, although the cherry blossom trees are in bloom there right now. I thought this pathway with the gleaming cherry blossoms amidst the oak trees had a magical feel. 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. She is peppered with freckles and has a deeply kind expression... I think she is most likely an 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 23.
This is a rough sketch.
