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.
