WetCanvas February 2013 Challenge – Hibiscus


The
WetCanvas February challenge

today.   Flowers aren’t my favorite things to paint – they look as though they should be easy but never are.   Will reserve judgement on this for a few days.

The initial washes.


Building up the form and putting in the center darks.


Finished the petals and the darks.  Debated whether to add in more shadows here

Finished and under a mat.  Not sure about the background – may revisit.


A closer crop with a smaller mat.  Better?  Can’t really tell.
