My Photograph of a Red Flower at Huntington Gardens + July Sketches Art, Day 6 Sketch, Gothic Angel...



I took this photograph of this flower at Huntington Gardens.  I'm not sure what kind of flower it is, but I thought it was quite beautiful... 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 maiden.  I think she has a deeply contemplative look.  I think she is most likely an angel fairy, 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 6.

This is a rough sketch.
