Hibiscus Bud

6"x6" oil on board

This is one of the buds off my  hibiscus bush. It is covered in buds and flowers at this time of the year, the flowers are a beautiful dark orange and brighten up the garden in the winter months! Love them!! I used three colors in this painting...cad red light, ultramarine blue and cad lemon with a bit of white.


  1. OMG! The painting arrived today. I LOVE IT! And I love the way you packaged it. It was like opening a present. I should have taken pics along the way as I opened it, but I was so excited, I just ripped into it. Thanks again. It is so beautiful. It's sitting on my coffee table with my favorite painting. I have a little gallery!

    1. Whew!! Thank goodness it arrived safely, it seemed to take a while. I'm so glad you like it,I always hope it looks better in real life:)

  2. Only three colours!........ Beautiful, rich colours. Really like the composition too!
