I took this photograph of this gold and rust hued bearded iris at Huntington Gardens during my most recent visit. Irises are one of my favorite flowers, I am very tempted to paint this flower. I hope that you will enjoy this photo!
I love to paint flowers, you may see some of my finished paintings at www.lisarusso.com if you'd like.
Here is a sketch of a big eyed maiden. I think she has a kawaii gothic Lolita feeling. She has a sweet soft smile and stars and moons on her cheeks. I think she is most likely an 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 March. This is sketch 2.
This is a rough sketch.
