My Photograph of Flowers at Huntington Gardens + October Sketches Art, Day 19 Sketch, Big Eye Angel...



I took this photograph of these flowers at Huntington Gardens.  In addition to this soft peach color, they also came in white, purple, and pink.  I thought they were all lovely.  I'm not sure what the name of this flower is, but this photo is one of two that I am considering for a small painting.  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 maiden.  She has a caring and sweet expression...  I think she is most likely an angel fairy, although she could also be a goddess or a mermaid.  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 October.  This is day 19.

This is a rough sketch.

I always forget the flower's name and I should remember, because they look like the ones I had in my wedding bouquet :)
