Watercolor Hibiscus Flower

My watercolor hibiscus painting is nearly finished. Normally everything I paint has to have eyes. I love painting people so much. So I was really surprised with how much I enjoyed painting this. . . Though I am trying to bring it to life. If you look close you can see a little bud just starting to peek out in the corner. My big flower is trying to offer encouragement to the little bud! My paintings always have to tell some kind of story. It is such a blessing to be able to create and love every second of doing it!

  1. I love this painting. You did a great job!! It looks so real. You have been busy.

  2. I know what you mean by saying how much you enjoyed painting this one. The portraits, even though we love to do them, take a lot out of us; the flowers just seem to give us something back.
    Nice painting Kathy.
