Randy Magnolia's are blooming

I just love magnolia's, I have several varieties and right now the "Randy" magnolias are just starting to bloom. They are a unreal color of pink and fushia, they almost seem to glow. Their stem growth and blooms have such an Asian feel to them, simple lines that burst forth in pure color. I want to paint several versions and I want try and loosen up with a much wetter style. I have this habit of starting out loose and tightening up!LOL I will post more, I hope to get comments on the different methods I use, I will post some pictures too just in case someone wants to join me. Maybe I should call it Magnolia February, its funny because I bought these two magnolia's just because they were called "Randy" and that is my husbands name, with his birthday on the 27th it only seems appropriate we dedicate the month to his magnolia's.

I want to come play!!! LOL. I don't think I've seen this variety. I like the point of view you chose. The colors lovely but I want to see the wetter look. I have a hard time with flowers, they always look too stiff. The new Watercolor Magazine has some good tips on painting wetter and has some lovely florals in the article.

Gorgeous magnolia paintings! I love February -- that's when it all begins, isn't it. Woo hoo! Spring is on the way! And you've captured that feeling beautifully.
