My Photograph of a Zinnia Flower Bud at Huntington Gardens + May Sketches Art, Day 17 Sketch, Big Eye Angel Fairy...



I took this photograph of this zinnia flower bud at Huntington Gardens.  Even before the flowers bloom, I think they are quite lovely.  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 sweet upwards glance and full, lovely hair.  I think she is most likely an angel fairy, 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 17.

This is a rough sketch.

Boa tarde, a flor é linda, está bem fotografada, pintar flores é como transportar a sensibilidade das mesmas para a tela, o esboço certamente que com dedicação vai ficar maravilhoso.
Feliz fim de semana,
AG
