My Photograph of Bi-Color Tulip Flowers at Descanso Gardens + March Sketches Art, Day 29 Sketch, Angel Fairy...



I took this photograph of these bi-color tulips at Descanso Gardens during my most recent visit.  There were so many beautiful tulips, they are such a joyful flower.  I'm not sure how long they'll be in bloom though...  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.  With her sweet bonnet, she is very loosely inspired by Jean-Etienne Liotard's painting Madame de'Epinay...  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 March.  This is day 29.

This is a rough sketch.
