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.
