My Photograph of a Bird at Huntington Gardens + Sketch of a Big Eye Mermaid/ November 22 Art Sketches Daily...


I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!  There is so much I am thankful for...


I took this photograph of this bird at Huntington Gardens, I believe it was in May.  I'm not sure what type of bird it was, but I thought is was so cute upside down and not to be dissuaded from whatever tasty goodies it was after...  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 a regal quality...  I think she is most likely a mermaid, 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.


I've decided to try and do a sketch a day in November. This is day 22. 

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 83. 

This is a rough sketch.

Love the photo of the bird, it could be a woodpecker, they like to hang upside down! Great sketch, too. Happy Thanksgiving, we all have so much to be thankful for! Hugs, Valerie
