Magnolia blooms are so graceful. Their evolution is so interesting - they turn into the oddest seed pods. I used Rose Madder Genuine for this blossom. It's a tricky color to use, cause it tends to granulate unless you are careful. Some artists like granulation, though. I used a wonderful Schmincke color on the stems called Transparent Brown.
