My Photograph of Two Turtles at Descanso Gardens + June Sketches Art, Day 29 Sketch, Gothic Mermaid...



I took this photograph of these turtles at Descanso Gardens.  I believe they are red eared sliders, but I'm not sure.  They seemed to be posing for me... I hope that you will enjoy this photo!


Although I've yet to paint a turtle, I love to paint animals, 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 has long flowing hair that cascades around her.  I think she is most likely a mermaid, although she could also be a fairy angel 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 29.

This is a rough sketch.
