Spring Bloom – #NatureDoodlewash

Today I wanted to honor the Spring Season with this lovely “Cherry Blossom”.

Before Spring will say goodbye to us and we will welcome the Summer, I wanted to paint one flower that is pretty much a worldwide symbol of this beautiful season.
The Cherry Blossom is recognized to be the National flower of Japan and in Japanese is known as “Sakura”. A flower found now pretty much everywhere in the world and there are many  varieties. The flowers are pink or white.  In the Japanese culture the Cherry Blossoms symbolize clouds due to their nature and their way of blooming as group of flowers that looks like clouds. This lovely flower also holds various meanings like joy, love, hope, humility and more.


Details about my
doodlewash:
 watercolor outlined with black ink pen. I used  French Artists Watercolors  Sennelier  l’Aguarelle 12 demi-godets half-pans travel metal box  and Pigma Micron Black ink #005 painted over a Canson Mixed Media  Sketchpad!

With this watercolor I am also  joining Charlie at doodlewash  for a  #NatureDoodlewash

You all are welcome to join with your doodlewash! If you do don’t forget to “Tag” your image.
