My Photograph of a Pink Rose Flower at Huntington Gardens + Sketch of a Big Eye Angel, Siberian Iris Flower, & Fairy/ January 22, 23, & 24 Art Sketches Daily...



I took this photograph of this pink rose at Huntington Gardens in the winter.  There had just been some rain and the flower still has some droplets on it.  This rosebud looks like it's just starting to bloom.  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 a whimsical expression...  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 January. This is from day 22. 

This is a rough sketch. 


Here is a sketch of a siberian iris flower.  Irises are amongst my favorite flowers...  I'm unsure if I'll paint it or not, but I did enjoy sketching it.

Here is a sketch of a big eyed maiden.  She has a sweet bow in her hair...  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 wish we had a garden here that I could take photos. Yours have always been so pretty and then you paint them! Love your sketches too.

Lisa,

Nice job! I scrolled through your painting on your gallery a bit, too. I tried a little at sketching Anime girls. It's not easy to draw big eyes. You make your girls' big eye quite realistic. I'd like to be able to do this and judging by your gallery you've been doing it awhile. I'll keep plugging at it until I'm more comfortable with the new skill set. I'm quite the novice when it comes to art but I love stretching myself and learning. It's unlocked something in my brain which I have to exercise often now. Thanks for sharing these pieces!
