Ohbuoy, I agree with you--the overall effect of the necklace, altho beautiful, isn't tropical (for me), however, the conch shell certainly is and it is superbly done. Good work!

You got some interesting effects with your two digital entries, Te. Soft and flowing.

Heliconia come in hundreds of varieties. I've not seen this one before. They're related to bananas and the mega-plant called a "Traveler's Tree."

And yes, it's watercolor. On this one I did the flower and stalk first, then dropped in a loose wet-on-wet background, leaving a very thin white space around the first part. After that dried, I went back in wet-on-dry to lay in some details.

Glad you like it; thanks for the inspiration! Oh, and I have a frangipani just like yours in my back yard ... here we call them Plumeria.

Teddi, this particular variety of heliconica is an Aussie native, it's from the Cairns Botanical gardens...
I'm doing a plein air floral painting in watercolour at present, and will need to do this sort of background for it(instead of a brick wall!!! ) so I really appreciate the info. funnily enough, it's also of an Aussie native I have growing in my garden..
BTW we have a very different flower we call plumeria...it's tiny and blue!!!
