Thank you, Mea. I have some difficulties with blending acrylics since it dries too fast and I have no blending medium, but I did my best. It's still not, what I hoped for, but not bad.   :)

 :smitten: Beautiful, Sarlota. You did a lovely job on this painting. I have a baby magnolia tree in my front yard. I love when I get the blooms.  :smitten:

Thank you Patricia, Kathy, Steve.  :)

Steve, for the background I used Daler Rowney Process Cyan Heavy body+white. But the other colours I used, are no name hobby paints. My tittanium white is pretty transparent and the primary rouge colour is more opaque. I had to create more layers to get to what I wanted.

Thanks Maria and Nolan. I got a chance to hang my acrylic paintings in a small cafe in our capital city in June and July. This one will be there too.  8)

Sarlota, your magnolia painting is beautiful! The colors are perfect together! Wonderful blending and the background is the perfect setting for those lovely flowers!

Thank you Christina, I did some research, took many photos of magnolia trees while taking a walk along nearby streets. Amazingly, people grow various magnolia cultivars so it was not easy to decide, which one to paint.  :confused: This one is called Magnolia liliiflora.
