Botanical Sketches #22 - Magnolia

With today's sketch, I tried to capture the exquisite beauty of the magnolia flower.  Magnolia's are a bit of southern magic that we don't see in New England.
After sketching the image, I filled in the petals with a watered down gesso so they would look white.  I watered it down so a bit of the mono print would peek through.  Overall, I love it!
