Red Osier

acrylic 16 x 24

It took me awhile to find the name of these brilliant shrubs...Red Osier Dogwood. Wonderful red color in the winter, contrasting with the snow. From deep Burgundy to bright cad red light depending on the reflecting sunlight. I love these bushes. These last two paintings on the other hand, have been a  bit of a challenge.....I'll need to paint several more before I'm satisfied and feel more comfortable.
