My Photograph of Crocus Spring Flowers at Descanso Gardens + Sketch of a Big Eye Fairy Angel/ Art Sketches Daily/ SEP 20...



I took this photograph of these spring flowers at Descanso Gardens.  I love their delicate purple petals.  I'm not sure what they are, but I thought they were very pretty.  I hope that you will enjoy this photo! 

Edit:  Thanks so much Christine and Jennifer for identifying them as crocuses!


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.  Her hair is charming with a pixie cut and a peek a boo look...  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 September. This is day 20. 

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.

Olá, linda flor que valoriza as suas belas partilhas, a grande donzela de olhos grandes está cada vez mais atraente.
Fim de semana feliz,
