My Photograph of a White Bearded Iris at Descanso Gardens + July Sketch Art, Day 18 + 19 Sketches, Angel Fairy + Anthurium Flower...



I took this photograph of a white bearded iris at Descanso Gardens.  I love how it was surrounded by roses.  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 is looking upwards with a caring expression.  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 July.  This is from day 18.

This is a rough sketch. 


Here is a sketch of an anthurium.  I love how the shape of the flowers and their leaves resembles the shape of hearts.  I'm unsure if I'll paint it or not, but I did enjoy sketching it.

Trying to hide that imagination (hairstyle) among the flowers...
