Semi-Daily Art -- Hibiscus, two versions.

4" x 5 1/2"
White Sakura Koi pan watercolor
Brown Crescent matboard
photo reference by Lake of Trees for Weekend Drawing Event Sept. 18 2009 on WetCanvas.com

Then I did it again, this time in color. The challenge was to use ten or more colors in the focal point and do a colorful painting from one of the floral references. I used white, three yellows, two oranges, four reds and violet in the flower, so that did the challenge even if the focal point is 2/3 of the picture area.


Pink-Orange Hibiscus
5" square
Sakura Koi pan watercolor
Canson Montval cold press (Not surface) watercolor paper
