My Photograph of Pink Water Lilies at Huntington Gardens + August Sketches Art, Day 2 Sketch, Big Eye Mermaid...



I took this photograph of these pink water lilies at Huntington Gardens.  Water lily flowers have such beauty and grace.  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 maiden.  She has long flowing hair and a sweet expression.  I think she is most likely a mermaid, although she could also be a fairy angel or a goddess.  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 August.  This is day 2.

This is a rough sketch.
