It's lovely Wyn, maybe you could go even darker in the centre of the flower.

Re: February 2013 Watercolor Challenge - Hibiscus

Thanks for comment Doug. You cant imagine how many times I have changed the middle I just cant get the depth right. I cant get the shimmer either...any clues?
hugs
Wyn

Just give it a coat of Ultramarine+Burnt umber mix in the centre Wyn that will make the flower glow. Wet the edge of the area with clean water before you do it so it will fade out at the edges.

Re: February 2013 Watercolor Challenge - Hibiscus

At first I started to throw this one in the round file but I gave it a rest & came back & could see where I had goofed it up. I have to say, I am not a flower painter! I wish someone could tell me how to quit when I should. I seem to overwork everything. Criticism & comments welcome!

Re: February 2013 Watercolor Challenge - Hibiscus

It's lovely Rachel. It looks a bit pale on my screen though.

I think in retrospect I might have extended the staame to put it in fron tof a dark background.
