My Photograph of Cherry Blossoms Flowers at Descanso Gardens + April Sketches Art, Day 12 Sketch, Fairy Angel...



I took this photograph of these cherry blossoms at Descanso Gardens during a recent visit.  Sakura have such a sweet and delicate beauty...  I'm not sure if they're still 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.  She has a bright inquisitive expression...  I think she is most likely a fairy angel , 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 April.  This is day 9.

This is a rough sketch.
