My Photograph of Purple Wisteria Flowers at Descanso Gardens + July Sketches Art, Day 20 Sketch, Big Eye Fairy...



I took this photograph of these flowers at Descanso Gardens.  I believe they are wisteria flowers.  I do photograph many differently colored flowers, but purple is a favorite of mine... 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 steampunk maiden.  She is looking upwards and is perhaps a bit miffed.  I think she is most likely a fairy angel, 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 July.  This is day 20.  

This is a rough sketch.

Very clever of you. Even the beauty is wondering why you posted the flowers before her.
