WC Weekly challenge- dogwood
One of the members posted pictures of her mother's dogwood that is in full bloom. She took several pictures and posted them for us to draw this week. It was a great study in value and negative spaces. I am really pleased with the results, I did it with mechanical pencil in my sketchbook. Where I live we can not grow dogwoods so I envy those who can. I have tried several times, I order them from a catalog and this tiny little twig arrives. I spend the next few months babying this thing in hopes it will grow, but I haven't managed to get one to survive a full season. Its just not a Southern California (desert) plant!
