My Photograph of a Spring Flowers at Descanso Gardens + May Sketches Art, Day 4, Angel Fairy...



I took this photograph of these spring flowers at Descanso Gardens.  There are tulips and poppies and I'm not certain of the names of the rest.  In many of my photos, I focus on close ups, but this view was so pretty I could not resist.  We're past the point where these spring blossoms bloom there, but 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 glances sweetly upwards with most of her hair swept up...  I think she is most likely an angel fairy, 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 4.

This is a rough sketch.

She's right. "Flowers couldn't compare to the one flower."
