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.
