"Single Dogwood" by Carol Thompson

"Sturdy and bright, a 'single dogwood' is appealing in its simplicity.  No wonder so many gardens feature this versatile tree."

Artist comment:  "I like to focus on one single flower and explore all the details that it has to offer.  Using Arches 140# hot-pressed watercolor paper, I first drew the subject lightly with a # 2 pencil.  I then washed in the background  keeping in mind the color of the bloom, the size and shape; and where my highlights would be, based on the direction of light.  In this small watercolor, I emphasized the mood of the dawning of a Spring day, with the yellow light in the upper right, and deep shadows in the lower left.  The detail was carefully placed in layers as I completed the piece."
