Dogwoods and Azaleas
July 4, 2014 § 2 Comments
Dogwoods, that timeless favorite of spring, and azaleas, deserve lots of attention, and this spring I gave it to them. This a large painting for a watercolor, and painting at this size presents difficulties of many kinds. For instance, all the brushes need to be of different sizes than those used in “regular” watercolors, each image is larger and therefore the working area dries more slowly, and possibly unevenly. The number of flowers required to complete the planned painting is enormous. Many dogwood branches and azalea flowers went into creating this large painting, but, as Frida Kalho said, “I paint flowers so they will not die.”
I see you’ve been working hard on your lovely paintings. Your flowers are so delicate, so pretty. Great designs!
