Louisiana State Flower - The Magnolia
The magnolia is a majestic flower. It's elegant and showy. It's fragrant.
I used water-based dual brush pens for this collection. I love this medium. Each pen stroke is planned and carefully executed. Zoom in to see the cream colored lines made by the pen strokes. Look at the green lines in the large green leaves. The back sides of the leaves are brown.
There's a reason I drew the magnolia blossom facing forward. I wanted to showcase the inside of this beautiful flower.
