My Photograph of an Iris After the Rain at Huntington Gardens + December Sketches Art, Day 28 Sketch, Big Eye Mermaid...



I took this photograph of a bearded iris at Huntington Gardens during my most recent visit.  It had just rained and the wine colored flower was glistening with rain drops...  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.  Her hair is flowing wildly around her...  I think she is most likely a mermaid, although she could also be a goddess or an angel fairy.  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 December.  This is day 28.

This is a rough sketch.
