Dogwood Branch

Dogwood Branch
DPW $160

     The dogwoods here on our property are white, but I pinked this one because I wanted it to stand out on a greenish background. The dogwoods in this series are from photographs I took last year. In order to paint something other than the color it is, I have to render it in black and white, grayscale, on the computer. Otherwise I would forget what I am doing and start painting the color I see, white. Having photographs that I could alter helped in this case.

  1. This painting is so beautiful, Cheryl. I love the way the light sings along the branch and leaves. Gorgeous!
