Magnolia (1)

September 15, 2011

Graphite pencil, Winsor & Newton watercolour

Flowers having now been set, this magnolia has now put its energy into making leaves. I am in the process of working out where the initial, small vertical growths associated with the seed pods are appearing.

What this sketch doesn’t convey is the fact that almost no sky is visible behind a mass of leaves, with just a few remaining flowers.
