The tulips are coming, the tulips are coming! I took this photograph of this tulip during a past year at Descanso Gardens. They are not yet in bloom there, but they are coming. Every year they have a slightly different mix of what tulips they plant, some are the same and some are different, but it's a joy to see them. This is one of my favorite tulips that they've had... 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. I think she comes from the land of the ice and snow. I think she is most likely a goddess, although she could also be a fairy angel 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 February. This is day 15.
This is a rough sketch. I am also participating in the February 29 Faces Challenge, this is face 15.
