Tulip Magnolia (detail)


This painting took two years to finish. I took many photos of the tulip magnolia tree at the former Devlin Winery in Soquel, California. I juxtaposed them to show the meadow and redwoods in a soft focus behind them. The flowers were no longer in bloom by the time I had my initial drawing done. I waited until the next year when I could have the actual flowers in hand and could see all of the detail not noticeable in the original pictures, including the little growth lines and spots on the stems and fuzziness of the buds. I was especially pleased with the highlighting of the branches and flowers.

Giclees are available on paper or gallery wrapped canvas, also art note cards
