My Photograph of Coneflowers & a Bee at Huntington Gardens + August Sketches Art, Day 17 Sketch, Big Eye Angel...



I took this photograph of these coneflowers at Huntington Gardens.  Here there are red and yellow flowers and a bee has alighted to dine on the flower's sweet nectar.  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.  Her big eyes are heavily lined with kohl and she looks like she is considering something...  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 August.  This is day 17.

This is a rough sketch.
