Cherry Blossoms and Japanese Teacup II

6x6 acrylic on hardboard panel
available on eBay

Going back to cherry blossoms in the spring sunshine.... planning on a perfectly wonderful day tomorrow with much reference-picture-taking. I want to try a few large pieces looking up into the branches of something in flower- thinking japanese magnolia and dogwood as soon as possible, and then wisteria and magnolia will have to wait till summer. I know gardenias wouldnt work like that, but maybe roses, like youre lying under the rosebush just gazing up at the sun? Beautiful idea... getting those reference pics should be thoroughly entertaining, on the other hand :D
