White Rhododendron

"White Rhododendron"
6" x 6"
oil on gessobord

One of the reasons I love living in Oregon is its spring time with many blossoms. So beautiful! Rhododendrons are everywhere, and so many colors... I wanted to paint a white one but I only have pink and red bushes in my yard, so I asked a friend to cut a little twig...

After yesterday's study this painting looks very subdued with all kinds of grays. I love gray as much as I love other colors. Gray makes bright colors look brighter. Please note that I didn't use pure white to paint flowers...
