My Photograph of Lotus Flowers in the Chinese Gardens at Huntington Gardens + Sketch of a Big Eye Angel, Goddess, & Fairy/ September 25, 26, & 27 Art Sketches Daily...



I took this photograph of lotus flowers and a bridge at Huntington Gardens.  The Chinese gardens are a delight to see, there are linked ponds and beautiful pathways in addition to the lovely water lilies.  I believe that the time of the lotus lily has passed, but some of the smaller waterlilies may still be blooming.  I hope that you will enjoy the photos!


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 a sweet flower headband.  I think she is most likely an angel fairy, 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 September. This is from day 25. 

I am also participating in the September 29 Faces Challenge! The goal is to share 29 faces in the month of September.  I think I will try to extend it out to a goal of 100 faces sketched on consecutive days...

This is a rough sketch. 


Here is a sketch of a big eyed gothic maiden.  She has a very silly quality...  I think she is most likely a goddess of mischief, 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.
