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.

A quick rose sketch


Watercolor, 14x19cm
Did this light red rose very quickly late in the afternoon yesterday. It was just to satisfy my feeling of something like I have to paint that day.

A bright tulip to start the day

Yesterday, I painted this tulip just to try my new set of Winsor & Newton artist acrylic. I like the quality of the paints. Will use them more.
This is a small size painting, 14x19 cm on Fabriano acrylic paper.

An apple a day

Watercolor, 13x18 cm
On acid free Fabriano Artistico watercolor rough paper
Apple is one of the regular fruits I eat everyday. Usually, I peel the fruit before taking it because of the danger of the pesticide sprayed on it. Nowadays however, I choose to buy the organic ones so that I can also eat the skin of the fruit. It is in the skin where most of the vitamins sit.
