Dogwood Flowers

This is the bottom of another page I had started but never finished in my S&B Beta journal. 

Using W&N watercolors I painted this dogwood using simple brush strokes trying to keep things simple.

I love dogwoods!!!  To me a delicate flower and beautiful in its simple form.  Come Spring I love looking across the surrounding woods seeing splashes of white as the dogwoods come to life.  They grow wild here on the mountain top tucked in amongst the towering tulip, oaks, hickory trees and unknown other species of deciduous trees.

Beautiful! You captured the delicate nature of these blooms perfectly. I love dogwoods, too, but they don't grow in Arizona. My husband and I drove to DC and NYC late March last year and I was hoping to photograph dogwoods in bloom, but we were too early. But the cherry blossoms in DC were out!

Your dogwood petals are lovely, and your mountain top of trees sounds beautiful... :)))))

Nice, loose and spontaneous flowers that capture the character well.
