My Photograph of a Golden Tree Bough at Descanso Gardens + April Sketches Art, Day 27, Fairy Angel...



I took this photograph of this golden tree bough at Descanso Gardens.  I thought it was interesting because it gleamed with fall colors in the midst of spring.  I don't know what kind of tree this it, but I thought it was quite lovely.  I hope that you will enjoy this photo!


I love to paint trees, 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's glancing back at us...  I think she is most likely a fairy angel, although she could also be a mermaid or a 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 April.  This is day 27.  

This is a rough sketch.
