Magnolia

Can you tell spring has sprung?? This young magnolia tree is in the front of our office building and bursting with sweet color. I grabbed a sprig as I left work to sketch at home. These are 10 minute sketches with water color added. The color scanned a bit more magenta that it is but, I am happy with the contours I captured. Pencil and pen in sketchbook and watercolor added

Very well done, Sandy. I've always wanted a magnolia tree - we keep saying, someday...
