Magnolia blossom 1

March 28th, 2006

The magnolia shrubs are in full bloom at Descanso, and I had the opportunity to paint some of them in my botanicals sketchbook a week or so ago. I will probably do another page with the blossom fully open, but at the time I loved their sculptural look in well-formed bud. It’s no wonder that these are often nicknamed “tulip trees.” I would like to have one of these in my yard, and perhaps I’ll plant one some time. We lost a very large magnolia tree to oak root fungus many years ago, so I’ve been hesitant to plant anything in the magnolia family since then.

  4. The magnolia is beatiful, and it is arranged so nicely on the page. Jean

  6. Pink magnolias are among my favorite spring bloomers! This is a wonderful study. Your “Lady Karen” sketchbook is going to be a treasure!

  8. Hello Karen,
    Thanks for visiting my blog. Yes, Vivaldi card is simply the name of a fairly thin & smooth type of card available here in New Zealand.

    I have been enjoying your work on this blog very much. Your sketches seem very spontaneous & ‘just right’.

    Geoffrey
