I took this photograph of these flowers at Huntington Gardens. In addition to this soft peach color, they also came in white, purple, and pink. I thought they were all lovely. I'm not sure what the name of this flower is, but this photo is one of two that I am considering for a small painting. 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 maiden. She has a caring and sweet expression... I think she is most likely an angel fairy, although she could also be a goddess or a mermaid. 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 day 19.
This is a rough sketch.
