Rhodies

The Rhododendrons in our yard are bursting out and are beautiful. Rhododendron (from Ancient Greek ῥόδον rhódon “rose” and δένδρον déndron “tree”) is a  genus of 1,024 species of woody plants in the heath family (Ericaceae), either evergreen or deciduous, and found mainly in Asia, although it is also widespread throughout the Southern Highlands of the Appalachian Mountains of North America. This is my first attempt at negative painting and may be used as a study for a larger painting. Utrecht Watercolors in a 5″ x 9″ Moleskine Watercolor book.
