My Photograph of Green to White Hydrangeas Snowball Flowers at Huntington Gardens + March Sketches Art, Day 8 Sketch, Fairy Angel...


Happy International Women's Day!


Edit: They are also known as Hydrangeas

I took this photograph of these green flowers at Huntington Gardens a while back.  I believe they are snowball flowers, as the season progresses they become more white...  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.  She looks surprised by what she sees, she smiles a little, so I hope it is something good.  I think she is most likely a fairy angel, although she could also be a mermaid or a goddess.  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 8.

This is a rough sketch.

The flowers are very beautiful, Lisa... such a lovely shade of green.
She does looked surprised in a very, pretty way. Maybe she sees Prince Charming heading her way ;)
