My Photograph of Bearded Iris Flowers at Descanso Gardens + August Sketches Art, Day 24 Sketch, Big Eye Fairy...



I took this photograph of these bearded irises at Descanso Gardens.  There are so many delicate colors gracing these lovely flowers, the pinks merge into lilacs and there are soft golden hues as well.  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.  She has a slight smile gracing her face.  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 August.  This is day 24.  

This is a rough sketch.

The maiden looks as if she's saying, "Is that you?"
