Pink Cherry Blossoms

Title: Pink Cherry Blossoms
on Tree Trunk
(watercolor, micron 02 pen, sketchbook)

I love cherry blossoms that are so wild, they grow all over the tree!


I also love the huge variety of cherry blossoms that grow in Oregon. Here are some darker pink blossoms:


And here are some less-ruffled but still-gorgeous pink cherry blossoms:


Is there anything better than looking up through a canopy of cherry blossoms on a beautiful spring day?

I love how you painted the petals. Did you use wet into wet? Love the photos too, any one of them would be lovely framed and hung on a wall.

Thank you, Aveen and Melissa!

Yes, Aveen, the petals were done (partially) wet-into-wet. The yellow centers were added wet-into-dry.
