An early morning shot of my desk as I get ready to sketch a "Magnolia Grandiflora" aka Magnolia little gem or Southern Magnolia depending on which country you live in. I think they are pretty much the same plant and always fun to paint.
First attempt using far too bright colours to get a feel for the shape and shadows. Choice of yellow was completely wrong but still fun to paint.
Second attempt in a more traditional watercolour style. Pleased with the end result and now considering doing a third attempt.
Hope everyone is having a fun woyww. I will get around to visit desks but these days it is a late post and a slow meander over the week.
