Magnolias

Three attempts to catch the rich lusciousness of magnolias blooming in Bath’s Botanical Gardens. For the first and last ones I used fountain pen for the initial drawing, for the second one brush-pen and white roller-ball. The white paper and Payne’s Grey wash on the first helps to capture the petal’s glow, but this was scuppered in the last one by using grey paper and grey ink for shading, duh!
