A California art print on Arches watercolor paper. 100% archival, and printed in HD.

"This acrylic watercolor was created from Dad's imagination. He wrote that it was our dogwood, but our front yard doesn't look this vast! The painting was used in the book Acrylic Watercolor Painting by Wendon Blake in 1970. Blake described Dad's technique: `Applying his liquid color in fluid, scrubby strokes thin enough to remain translucent, but slightly thicker than traditional watercolor Gramatky has chosen a scumbling stroke for the texture of the trees. A thinner, streakier version of this stroke is used for the sky. Because this type of stroke retains the impression of the bristles, the entire surface of the painting communicates a sense of vibrant action. You can feel the movement of the leaves and branches, the direction of the clouds and wind.'"
