The Chinese Magnolia trees are in full bloom and they are spectacular! For a long time I've wanted to paint some of these blossoms. A friend with a tree gave me permission to snip some branches. Thanks, Otha! Sorry for the glare in the photo, but this shot has the closest color match. Painting the large blossom felt similar to doing roses. I wiped it out and my second try worked out better. I'm going to keep practicing as long as my subject holds up!
