I took this photograph of these yellow roses at Descanso Gardens a while back. I have a particular fondness for roses and these just grabbed me... 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. I think she has a depth to her gaze although one eye is hidden. I think she is most likely a goddess, although she could also be a fairy angel or 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 18.
This is a rough sketch.
