Hi Johanna.I like your work very much.The Magnolia tree is a favorite of mine.Your first work, so graceful, nostalgic,and Zen-like. The interdependency of flowerand branch; those nascent little buds...Very pretty colors in your second work.Those petals. The interplayof light,and darkness all add to the lovely affect of your work.Cheers.
Very beautiful! Great watercolors.
Lovely! Both are very nice, it is hard to pick one over the other, but I guess the watercolor is my favorite.
Stunning! I absolutely love the watercolor!
These are lovely - I like the watercolour particualrly.
Beautiful sensitive work, love it!
Both of your drawing are great. Thanks for sharing them.
Beautiful! I also like your pencil drawings!
Your comment on my recent post has encouraged me greatly. And I'm enjoying seeing your beautiful drawings and watercolors! Thank you for taking the time to give your thoughts.
I am so glad I came to your blog. These are great representations for the magnolia. The detail in the pencil sketch is amazing. You captured the swelling buds and imperfections in the twigs perfectly. The watercolor has lovely shading, too. Glad you came back to creating, you have a gift. Thanks for sharing it with us.
The graphite version is wonderfully observed!Cynthia Padilla, Botanical Artist/Natural Science Illustrator http://www.artinstructor.blogspot.com/
