I took this photograph of these cherry blossoms at Descanso Gardens during my most recent visit. These flowers bring me such joy with their delicate beauty... 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. I think she looks a bit like Princess Leia, although she had pigtails instead of buns... 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 March. This is day 22.
This is a rough sketch.
