I have been painting flora since 2008 and here is a new painting from one of our Fall treasures, the Magnolia grandiflora. The red seeds are so striking and hang by a thin white thread! I sat with my pod for the last two days while giving an art demonstration in Yorktown, Virginia. It was such a joy to paint, especially as I added my darkest value on the seeds, any dried purple on my palette!
Happy Painting, Linda
