Re: hibiscus

Thank you for all the kind words.



Drew this mallow for the weekly drawing thread. Graphite in my sketchbook.
I think it's the same family as hibiscus.

Re: hibiscus

Very nice work. a cross between a peach and a white. The red center pulls your eye heavily. Can we see the reference? I wonder if some of that is reflected in the petals further up? The petals are well modeled, great job.

I'm sorry, I no longer have the reference--- I think it was from a magazine, not on my computer. I used the pink as reflection from the center. The flower was white (from brain), but had alot of reflected green from the bright shiny foliage (from eye). Perhaps I should have painted more and shinier leaves to balance the red center?
Thank you for your thoughtful comments.
