May Flower Challenge Day Two • Blue Magnolia joins the Collection

Blue Magnolia                   by Velásquez©2013

Blue Magnolia for day two of the May Flower Challenge . Each day you can post your flower creation, whether it is a doodle, drawing, photograph, collage or painting. This challenge has been started by Lori Moon, fellow blogger, talented photographer and jewelry artisan. Sign up and join in on the flower fun. Can't wait to see what you create as well! Please note: You do NOT have to participate every day. Play along on a specific day each week or only once - whatever inspires you. Join the challenge, here, it is going to be fun. 

I love this challenge not because I have a love for drawing, painting and printing flowers but it is an excellent way to build up your motif library. It also keeps your drawing hand in motion and the creative flow becomes a part of your being.

Magnolia sketches from last year's archives were used as reference for my new piece of art.
It always starts with a sketch. These sketches funnily enough were showcased in last November's Art Everyday Month Challenge. You can see it here.

My sweet, new Blue Magnolia joins my collection of large flowers 
which include Daisies, Echinaceas and Asian inspired florals.
