My Photograph of a Magnolia Flower + Sketch of a Big Eye Fairy, a Camellia, & a Bunny Rabbit/ Art Sketches Daily/ May 8, 9, & 10



I took this photograph of this magnolia flower at Alex's old place.  Before they trimmed them, the boughs dipped very low and I was able to get close shots of some of these gorgeous flowers.  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.  Her hair is long and lovely and she has some accent streaks running through it.  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 May.  This is day 8.

This is a rough sketch.


Here is a sketch of a camellia.  Some camellia flowers are more elaborate than others.  This time I selected one that I felt had a simple elegance to sketch.  I'm unsure if I'll paint it or not, but I did enjoy sketching it. 


I've decided to try and do a sketch a day in May.  This is from day 9.  

This is a rough sketch.


Here is a sketch of a bunny rabbit.  He has paused amidst some flowers.  Bunnies hold a special place in my heart.  I'm unsure if I'll paint him or not, but I did enjoy sketching him.


I've decided to try and do a sketch a day in May.  This is day 10.

This is a rough sketch.

Magnolia are such beauties, I love them. They used to be my absolute favorite flowering tree. Now, or at the moment it is dogwood, which is in bloom around here.
