My Photograph of a Calla Lily Flower at Descanso Gardens + June Sketches Art, Day 22 Sketch, Gothic Angel...



I took this photograph of this white calla lily at Descanso Gardens.  Calla lilies have such a grace and elegance... 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.  I was drawn to her by her fun hair and sweet eyes.  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 June.  This is day 22.

This is a rough sketch.

I've always loved calla lilies but they're so difficult to find around here. Your photo is lovely, capturing every essence of their beauty. :)
