Hibiscus Watercolor Flower Studies

Watercolor hibiscus with oil pastel by artist Katana Leigh.

Look at these two Hibiscus flowers – one done in oil pastel, the other in watercolor: image

Today I did still life studies of Hibiscus Flower  again, like yesterday. Painting Hibiscus Flower in watercolor makes a big difference between today’s flowers and yesterday’s oil pastel flowers. The marks and shapes change with the medium and give the flowers a different flavour.

Painting something many times is like memorizing a song; you start to know how the light falls and can paint it later, from memory.
