My Photograph of Light Purple Bearded Irises at Descanso Gardens + May Sketches Art, Day 25 Sketch, Fairy Angel...



I took this photograph of these lilac bearded irises at Descanso Gardens a while back.  These light purple flowers looked so beautiful to me nestled together... 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 seems to be pondering something with her eyes are closed in deep concentration.  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 May.  This is day 25.

This is a rough sketch.

Thank you Martin, perhaps so. Thanks Stacy, I think the daily sketches have really been beneficial to my art.
