My Photograph of Fringed Double Bloom Tulip Flowers at Descanso Gardens + April Sketches Art, Day 5 Sketch, Fairy Angel...



I took this photograph of this fringed double bloom tulip at Descanso Gardens during a recent visit.  I go a little photo nuts when I visit the gardens, I love flowers so much and I don't have any type of green in my thumb...  I'm not sure how long the tulips will 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 gothic maiden.  She has a gentle smile and sweet 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 5.

This is a rough sketch.
