My Photograph of a Trio of Roses at Huntington Gardens + August Sketches Art, Day 16 Sketch, Big Eye Fairy Angel...



I took this photograph of these roses at Huntington Gardens.  I love that this trio of flowers had different colors growing from the same stem.  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 an inquisitive quality.  I think she is most likely a fairy angel, although she could also be a mermaid 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 16.

This is a rough sketch.
