Hibiscus on my walk...



This beautiful Hibiscus flower was lying on the ground and he looked very forlorn so I decided to pick him up and take him home and paint him.  I used the Hydrus Magenta and some sap green and blues.
I was just about to paint the background sparkly blue with my new Twinkling H20s but the ink I used for outline wasn't water resist so I decided not to try it this time. Next time.
We are heading up to Greenville for a couple of days for Baby Marc's birthday. Can't believe he is already two.

I just had to see what it looked like with a blue background. Not bad.
