Forest Dogwood

Watercolor painting of a Forest Dogwood bloom by Janet Tarjan Erl.

Forest Dogwood

Medium: Watercolor, Image Size: 7.5″h x7.5″w, 2015.

In this quick watercolor study, I wanted to show the lantern like qualities of Dogwood flowers whose papery, white petals almost glow against the dark hues and values of the dense forest canopies they grow in. I kept the surrounding wash of this watercolor loose but indicated other plants in the background. One of my North American Wildflower Paintings series.
