Completed Hibiscus Painting

Waimea Girls
22 x 30 Watercolor on paper
by Colleen Sanchez

Finished my full sheet hibiscus painting this morning. This one is off to the framers and then headed for the gallery. I had such a good time painting these flowers. I saw these gorgeous hibiscus at the Waimea Valley Botanical Gardens on the north shore of Oahu and fell in love. The light was perfect with the dark background and little bits of light twinkling through I knew I'd have to paint them. I'm so happy to get back into the watercolor painting again.

Contemporary Watercolor Hibiscus Flowers - WIP

Full Sheet WIP
Still have a lot to do on this painting that I'm working on for the gallery that I'm being represented by now. By the end of the September, Nohea Gallery in Honolulu will have this and a few other of my watercolors. It was exciting and flattering to be approached by one of my favorite galleries in Honolulu. I'm looking forward to a long relationship with them. Now, to work.
