BIRDHOUSE AND AZALEAS By Cecelia Lyden

Another gray day, but not raining; so I decided to travel to my neighbor's yard to catch some beautiful azalea color before the wet weather washed it all away. I set up the composition, laid in the values [very flat with no sunshine to create shadows], colors and large and small shapes and finished the details indoors while it rained outdoors.

Looking good!
I LOVE the color of the azaleas, too.
