Cherry trees in bloom are a Washington DC iconic sight.
This tree was painted for the DPW challenge
and for Bil Guffy's Virtual Paintout challenge.,
from the trees in bloom along Ohio Blvd. in DC.
I tried to use Carol Marines directive of 'one stroke' at a time
and load with a new shade/tone between each, using a #6 bright.
Didn't quite make the single stroke per load,
but came close and will continue to work on
simplifying with this technique.
