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.
