I took this photograph of these pink flowers at the L.A. Arboretum during a recent visit. The light was shining through this tree filled with flowers even in our winter season. I think perhaps some fairies were manifesting in the orbs... I hope that you will enjoy this photo!
I love to paint flowers and fairies, 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. Her hair is flowing wildly around her and something of interest has caught her gaze. I think she is most likely a mermaid, although she could also be a goddess or a fairy angel. 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 February. This is day 1.
I am also participating in the February 29 Faces Challenge! The goal is to share 29 faces in the month of February. To learn more about the challenge, please click here: http://29faces.blogspot.com/.
This is a rough sketch.
