This is the second of the Magnolias I did last summer. That tree was old and huge and loaded with flowers. It was a beauty, but I think I will have only one more painting from it.
I liked suggesting the leaves and branches in an abstract way, but the best part was laying on the titanium white to highlight those big, thick white petals. Of course, they are not entirely white as very white objects rarely are in a painting.
