Florals

As is obvious by my recent posts and paintings, I love florals. That’s partly why I have found the early spring Wetcanvas challenges fun and irresistible this year. This painting is based on the reference in the February 2013 Watercolor Challenge –  http://www.wetcanvas.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1306333. Since Hibiscus is one of my favorite flowers, so beautiful and tropical, I just had to participate-even though I didn’t paint mine until March! I am also including two Hibiscus paintings I did several years ago, quite some time after taking a workshop from Terry Madden, but inspired by his style. For those, my references were my own photos, one taken while on a trip to Las Vegas and the other taken in my own yard.

    Thank you so much, Jeanne. As is obvious, I really love hibiscus and I grow the only type I can in our climate – and enjoy them thoroughly! :)
