My Photograph of Lotus Water Lilies at Huntington Gardens + August Sketches Art, Day 10 Sketch, Big Eye Angel...



I took this photograph of these tall lotus water lilies at Huntington Gardens.  I've seen many of the ones that bloom close to the water and I love them, but this was my first time seeing these ones and I was so moved by them.  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 kind heart...  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 10.  

This is a rough sketch.
