My Photograph of a Scarab Beetle on a Flower at Huntington Gardens + Sketch of a Big Eye Fairy Angel & Mermaid/ October 3 & 4 Art Sketches Daily...



I took this photograph of a scarab beetle on a flower at Huntington Gardens.  I've seen June bugs before, I've even painted one; but never one supping the nectar of a flower before.  I think the flower is a daisy, but I am not certain.  I hope that you will enjoy this photo!


I love to paint animals, 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 sweet pigtails and a slight smile.  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 October. This is from day 3. 

I would like to try to reach a goal of 100 faces sketched on consecutive days, I started this effort on September 1st, 2017...  This is face 33. 

This is a rough sketch.

the last maiden looks like she could be the figurehead on a ship with her hair blowing in the wind :)
