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.
