Kouza Dogwood






After the last session, I added some cobalt blue from the bottom up

More blue

Some darkening of leaves
Also, photo taken in daylight - WHAT a difference 

Completed ... I think
   When I was at Darts Hill last June [for an art event] I had an opportunity to spend some time taking pictures before the public arrived. It was a glorious evening with perfect lighting, so I took as many photos as I had time for. One of the "models" was an Oriental or Kouza dogwood, with a very elegant flower. Here are my photos, and my interpretation of one of the shots.

  1. ...And now the white is popping even more....Great painting Kathyn. The " Cornus Kousa" is a wonderful dogwood, and I would so much have liked to plant one in my little city garden...but alas! the garden is too small, and with too little sun, so instead I planted an "Amelanchier". Gorgeous, too.
