Finished dogwood painting

The dogwood painting is finally done. It was fun. The white flowers were a bit of a challenge with the dry brush watercolors, but in the end they came out just as I had wanted them. I used a lot of glazing layers in them to give them a soft glow. I changed the positioning of the sparrow slightly giving him a more natural perch from the original sketch.

Moon Light Wolf

Well here it is, my first new painting of the new year. He was inspired by all the snow we have had here latley. It's a miniature just 3.5 x 2.5 inches. I included a penny for scale.
