Hibiscus 1 Painting & Process

Just finished the first hibiscus painting – I saw this plant at a local store and couldn’t not buy it.  It’s giving out vibrant double blossoms every day or so.  This study is of a freshly fallen blossom, which are often just as interesting as the ones still hanging on the bush.  I’m including a few process images and study paintings too, but check out the final on Etsy!
