Featured in Creative Cards and Calendars Group and the Painted Florals Group – I went BIG on this one(well, at least for me!) – 16×20 Strathmore cold pressed water color paper! Painted with gouache water colors and water color pencils. The title comes from the lyrics of Collective Soul’s “Home” – Beauty adores us – it does – everything in nature is always there for us to enjoy – it never lets us down! And my magnolia trees never disappoint! This was one my blooms this past summer. This one took longer just because of the size of the painting and using the water color pencils and gouache together, I had to work for the right effect.
