I took this photograph of these daffodils at Descanso Gardens a past year, although the last time I visited there were a number of these beautiful narcissus blooming. I'm not sure how long these flowers bloom though, I love the soft variations in color, these are a soft white accented with a gentle peach. I don't think I've ever painted one, I think I'd like to add them to my painting wish list. It's quite a long list, so for now, some of my archived beauties... 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. She seems to be giving a wary over the shoulder glance... 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've decided to try and do a sketch a day in April. This is day 13.
This is a rough sketch.
