Len's Hibiscus


This is a watercolor that I finished a couple of weeks ago. It is about 14 x 17 on 300# arches watercolor paper. I will be showing it at a brand new local art gallery the end of this month. I will have the original matted and framed and then have prints to purchase also and maybe some greeting cards.


I did this as a dedication to my father who passed away in January. It is a photo that I took of one of his hibiscus's in Florida. It is all watercolor except the white veins and I used waterdown acrylic paint for those with a red wash over the top.
