Sunlit Hibiscus #1

Sunlit Hibiscus #1/ watercolor/ 5.75" x 7"/ sold
To paint this hibiscus, a wet silhouette of the flower image was laid down and colors were flooded into the wet area. This technique was used to get it "less tight" than the layered hibiscus painted below. Now, to combine the shadow glow of the bottom image with the looser flower....Painting wouldn't be any fun if there wasn't a new challenge!
