My Photograph an Orange Rose at Descanso Gardens + January Sketch Art, Day 25 Sketches, Starfish...



I took this photograph of this orange rose at Descanso Gardens a while back.  I've been searching through my photographs for roses for an angel fairy I am working on the details of and while this one isn't quite what I was looking for, I think the colors in this sunset sunrise rose are so beautiful...  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 are some sketches of starfish.  I don't think I've sketched a starfish before, they are fun to draw.  One of these may be an addition to a mermaid painting that I am reworking...  


I've decided to try and do a sketch a day in January.  This is day 25.  

These are rough sketches.
