"Evening Dogwood"

On this painting I experimented with some deeper. darler colors trying to get an "evening" effect. I also played with the brushstrokes, using almost all vertical strokes on the background as a counter to the horizontal branches. Your comments are welcome!!

Hey, Vick, this is lovely. The experimentation with color was successful, I'd say. It has an Oriental look.

Good idea about changing the strokes. You are sooooo clever. It’s a pretty piece. You know……..we are supposed to change the size of the blossoms too. Some large, some small, that’s what we are told. Perhaps larger clusters would do it. By the way – I could use some critique on my work. Do you have time if I send a few to you ?
