My Photograph of California Poppies at Descanso Gardens + January Sketches Art, Day 11 Sketch, Big Eye Angel Fairy...



I took this photograph of these orange flowers at Descanso Gardens in the summer.  They are California poppies; also known as the golden poppy, these are the state flower of my state California...  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.  Her eyes are closed and she has a very gentle quality.  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 January.  This is day 11.

This is a rough sketch.
