Crepe Myrtles in the Garden

Crepe Myrtles in the Garden
8 x 10
oil on canvas
I started this painting early last week when I went painting in the botanical gardens with my friend and fellow artist Allen Riddell. We went back and painted some more on our paintings today. There are still a few changes I need to make but I'm close enough to being done that I don't mind posting it. The mornings are nice for painting but it gets hot fast now. The crepe myrtles love the heat so there is always something to paint with color.


  1. You did a beautiful job on the tree.Nice painting!

  2. A beautiful one, Doug! Love that color! I also love the difference in the shades of greens you used.

  3. this is fantastic Doug! You got the blooms on the trees really nice!

  4. The crepe myrtles have been especially beautiful here this year... must be the heat!
    Love your crepe myrtle; your greens and the pink really work well together.

  5. Wonderful Work
