I don't have big chinks of time to paint these days. I found inspiration in a photo I took few months ago of a hibiscus plant.
Step 1 - the super fun part - wet the paper and lay down washes in the colors if the flower.
Step 2 - add more washes hoping to end up with a hibiscus ...
Well in my case it is an extraterrestrial hibiscus!
Or maybe a new variety that will be named after me ... or a carnivore plant ... or ...
I like the colors, but I think I overdid the background. I wanted to make the flower pop more and I am not convinved that purple was the way to go. As I type this, it crossed my mind to cover the purple part with a piece of collage. Why not? Stay tuned fo Extraterrestrial hibiscus - part 2 !
