This is from last year. We have Western Dogwood here which, unlike Eastern Dogwood, has more than four petals. In the autumn the berries turn bright red and the leaves turn sort of a brick red and look like stained glass when the sun shines on them. There are whole hillsides of dogwood in some spots and it’s a gorgeous site if you catch it at the right time. I tried to catch the “stained glass” effect here, but I used different colored pencils for the veining before the watercolor was applied as an experiment. The original colors are much brighter than this, but oh well, it’ll have to do.
