I have had a busy summer ,enjoying my grandchildren, traveling to Salem,Mass.,Boston, New York and recently to Las Vegas and the Grand Cannon.
Lots of inspiration for future paintings. Over the summer I have been working on mainly three paintings but one is a surprise so I cannot post it yet.
This is a watercolor painting of my hibiscus plant I bought for my patio.
I started both this painting and the next one I am posting with an under painting of aureolin and indian yellow to have the light shine through and give the right shade to this scarlet flower. Cad. red was used along with a mineral violet to make the veins and shadows.
