Magnolia Promise and Dark Backgrounds

MAGNOLIA PROMISE
Watercolor 8x10
 
I love painting magnolias - gives me a chance to use a dark background to set off  their beautiful creamy white petals. When we lived in South Carolina I could use the leaves from our magnolia tree for the mantle at Christmas time for a true southern holiday decoration!
