Tropical Hibiscus

Watercolor - 11x15

I began painting Tropical Bloom on wet paper, letting the colors run and blend while keeping an area of white for the hibiscus and leaving white areas at the bottom for a vignette effect.
When everything was dry I began painting defining the hibiscus with more blue in the background, I added shape and definition to the leaves and flower petals and added some hibiscus buds to carry the pink color around the composition.
