I stood while sketching the branch with a Pentel Brush Pen, then sat below the tree to add color to the sky and leaves. I stood once again to see the subtle shading on the flowers. This page is part of my Journal of Trees - a Zeta Series Stillman and Birn journal. Love this paper!
Did you know:
• The Flowering Dogwood is an understory tree which means it grows beneath taller trees.
• The fruit of the dogwood is called a 'drupe' - a fleshy fruit with a single seed. They are shiny red and can grow up to a half inch long.
• Many birds and animals eat the fruit.
