Magnolia in colour


I think it's lovely Mia, the colours work really well

Thank you very much, Heather. I must say that the picture on screen is a bit more pink than the real drawing (background should be white!) :)

Definitely not spoiled. You have caught its beautiful delicate petals.

No problem. You are so good at shading.

Have confidence in your colour washes Mia, of course you wouldn’t ruin it... you’re a skilled artist!

You have painted this superbly Mia. It has worked out so well and a piece to be very proud of.

Beautiful Mia, the colour is just right.

Delightful in its fragility Mia.

Very nice, lovely deli CV are washes

Thank you all for those fantastic comments. I appreciate!

Beautiful and delicate.

Best way to keep a magnolia, mine gets its petals and the wind blows the next day poof they are gone. Did you know you can eat the petals? They taste like ginger. Brilliant capture by the way X

This is pretty, Mia, and the colours are gorgeous.

Thank you Hilary, Jennifer and Jenny for your kind comments.

Beautiful drawing Mia and love the colours.

Thank you very much, Linda. I always appreciate your comments.

So good Mia, the colours are great.

Thank you very much, Paul.

Drawing is great and I like the added colour - just right.

Many, many thanks Maureen.

Hang on Studio Wall

Ouf!! I finally got there. I took a picture of the pen drawing to save it in case... and then added colour with my Inktense pencils! I was afraid to spoil the drawing but... what do you think? All comments are very welcome :) Mia
