Dogwood Rose in Watercolor

 I remember a lovely dogwood tree in the front yard of the house I grew up in. While flipping thru Dana Fox's book "Watercolor With Me in the Forest," I found just the flower from that memory to paint.

I traced the flower and used my light box to transfer it to Arches paper.

The techniques in this lesson include learning to add points to the leaves, by using a detail brush with pointed strokes around the edges.

I used Winsor and Newton Cotman Watercolor tubes to paint this pretty flower.
