I passed by these lovely hibiscus flowers every day on my vacation in Cape Cod. While painting I noticed that I was creating the look of a pastel (chalk) with my oil paints. So, I made sure to keep that look.
I've been enjoying working with orange and decided to make a painting about orange. So, there are all different oranges here, dark and light, opaque and transparent. And then there is the kick with the complement colors. This orange hibiscus is a bright beacon floating in a sea of dark blue-purple.
My hairdresser saved me again by bringing in his flowers from home. I grabbed my phone and took some photos. I especially loved painting the glowing orange hibiscus.
I really liked making the smaller hydrangea painting so I decided to make a larger one. Love those blues!

I used to grow these in Michigan, but they don't do well here in Texas. I saw these at the grocery store and couldn't resist.
