Hibiscus I

Watercolor, 15x18 cm
It is raining and dark outside although it is only 16:30 in the afternoon. Since I prefer to paint with natural light, I stopped working on this hibiscus. I will set this aside for sometime to see how I would like to finish it. 
I used my own reference photograph for this painting which I took during my visit in Asia. I do not know yet the specific name of this hibiscus but it is a typical single variety found in tropical climate.
I wish you all a fruitful art week ahead.


  1. Hoi Cora:) Wat een weer he? Bah. En inderdaad een beetje donker om te schilderen. Ik heb wel een daglichtlamp maar ik geef toch de voorkeur aan echt licht van buiten:)
    De hibiscus is een prachtige plant. Ik heb de struik gehad, zo mooi. Je hebt hem prachtig geschilderd. Ik ben benieuwd wat je nog toe gaat voegen. De achtergrond past er perfect bij! Heel mooi gemaakt. Een fijne, droge, week:)

  2. Dear Cora - this hibiscus is so beautiful. You have done a delightful job with this flower. Hope you have a wonderful week as well.

  3. Not finished yet ? I think it is a wonderful piece , beautiful colors all over, and the Hibiscus is perfect !

  4. Gorgeous work as is! I love the soft background, it highlights the beauty of the flower.
