ACEO size, 2 1/2″ × 3 1/2" Winsor & Newton Artist’s Watercolor on 140lb watercolor paper.
Two pink magnolia blossoms sit on a brown twig with small spring green leaves, exactly as I saw them on the saucer magnolia trees near KU in Lawrence, Kansas. These are the smaller pinkish Northern saucer magnolias, not the giant Southern magnolia trees. Painted against a white background in traditional botanical style. The exact color of the flowers is a mixture of Burnt Sienna and a little Winsor Red, shaded carefully to match the real flowers which were a slightly brownish pink.
