I took this photograph of this purple iris at Huntington Gardens. I thought the hues in these flowers were amazing. I think I'm going to sketch this one and hopefully paint it, the beauty in it is calling me greatly. I hope that you will enjoy this photo!
I love to paint flowers, you may see some of my finished paintings at lisarusso.com if you'd like.
Here is a sketch of a big eyed gothic maiden. Big hair with flowers seems to be my focus right now, I think I have one more reference image to sketch with very large hair for tomorrow, then I think the hair will be smaller for a while... I think she is most likely a goddess, although she could also be a mermaid or a fairy angel. 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 September. This is day 7. She is also face 7 for the 29 faces challenge in September.
This is a rough sketch.
