and Summer Hibiscus... I looooove hibiscus

And here is my range of Hibiscus. These are all 24cm x 39cm, watercolour on paper.

It's peak hibiscus season here in Sydney again. There are these fantastic blooms on nearly every street corner, hedge and roadside bush.

The only problem is as soon as you pick them they fad and die so you have to paint them within a day to capture them.

As you can probably tell my very favourite shades are the pinks and peach tones. Of course there are some stunning stunning reds and purples.

... but I'm building up to those.
