HIBISCUS LACE - Original Watercolor by Martha Kisling

Watercolor 11x15

I love painting big, colorful tropical flowers like theses hibiscus. We don't have many flowers like this here in Colorado but I have loads of photos of gorgeous hibiscus blooms from our visit to the beautiful island of Kauai several years ago. I applied the watercolor paints through tissue paper to create a lace like effect for the flowers and background.
