Magnolia Pod Painting

I painted this over graphite pencil with watercolor, then watercolor pencil, then colored pencil, then a bit more graphite pencil. I used 90 lb aquabee paper.  I tried to capture all the textures of the leaves and the pod. Next time I’ll use a sturdier paper because my style is becoming a bit more layered than before.  I think the magnolia pod is so beautiful with its red seeds.  It’s always a delight — I tried to capture my delight, so it’s not an entirely accurate portrayal, but it has good energy — potential of the seed, stability of the branch.
