My Photograph of an Orange Cactus Prickly Pear Flower at Huntington Gardens + June Sketches Art, Day 15 Sketch, Rose...



I took this photograph of this orange cactus prickly pear flower at Huntington Gardens.  The colors of this flower reminds me of a glorious sunrise or sunset... 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 rosebud.  This gently blooming rose is standing tall.  I doubt I'll paint it, but I did enjoy sketching it.


I've decided to try and do a sketch a day in June.  This is day 15.  

This is a rough sketch.

fascinating flower, I think I've seen the actual fruit. Beautiful rosebud, too bad you won't paint it, I am seeing the softest pink here!

It's rare for me to see an orange flower. This is pretty. So is the sketch.

Thank you so much Christine, Jennifer, and Lux! It's tempting to paint the rose at some point, I do love painting flowers...

The picture is beautiful, but the sketch contains something more
