Spring’s blossoming fruit trees are lovely and exciting with promise, but the masses of nearly white blossoms can be a challenge to paint. ¬†Yupo paper allows almost complete removal of paint as well as the addition of fine lines which edge light washes. The undertones in the blossoms were achieved with a blue underpainting. Much of the painting of the flowers was done by removing paint, then floating in a light orange color to give some crisp detail to the soft blossoms.
