My Photograph of Icelandic Poppies at Descanso Gardens + July Sketch Art, Day 11 + 12 Sketches, Rose + Goddess...



I took this photograph of these icelandic poppies at Descanso Gardens.  They are a brilliant orange color and looked so pretty together.  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 rose flower.  These flowers have such soft and delicate petals...  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 July.  This is from day 11.  

This is a rough sketch. 


Here is a sketch of a big eyed maiden.  She has a flower in her hair and a caring expression.  I think she is most likely a goddess, although she could also be an angel fairy or a mermaid.  I'm unsure if I'll paint her or not, but I did enjoy sketching her.

Beautiful poppies, love the orange. The rose is so delicately beautiful and your maiden's lovely with the flower in her hair.
