"Beacon Hill Magnolias" - 6" x 6" - Oil on Canvas
Yet another of my reference photos that I took while hanging out at Beacon Hill Park. Over by the Heron Rookery there is a grove of magnolia trees. I know this must be from that grove because there was an apartment building in the background. There was also masses of branches, smaller blossoms and leaves. I really wanted the magnolias to stand alone and be the star of the show, so I simplified the background down to this. I tried a few other ones, but I like this the best of all!
