I took this photograph of this rose at Descanso 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... It's been a while since I've sketched a rose, I decided to remedy that. My grandmother loved roses especially. I'm unsure if I'll paint it or not, but I did enjoy sketching it.
I've decided to try and do a sketch a day in June. This is day 8.
This is a rough sketch.
