My Photograph of a Painted Lady Butterfly on White Lilac Flowers at Descanso Gardens + March Sketches Art, Day 1 Sketch, Angel Fairy...



I took this photograph of this Painted Lady butterfly on white lilac flowers at Descanso Gardens a while back.  When they are in bloom, the fragrance of these flowers attracts many butterflies...  I hope that you will enjoy this photo! 


I love to paint flowers and animals, 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 has a feeling of strength and her eyes are accented.  I think she is most likely an angel fairy, 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 1.  

This is a rough sketch.
