Design: Luscious Pink Hibiscus Oil Painting

Luscious Pink Hibiscus Oil Painting-by Seas Reflecting Starlight

Hibiscus flowers are some of the most popular flowers here in Hawai’i, and one of the most iconic.  I’m no plant expert, but I think that this is the species Hibiscus rosa-sinensis which is native to East Asia but now very common in Hawai’i.  However, there are also many Hibiscus varieties that are native to Hawai’i in a full rainbow of colors.  And yes – tourist and local women alike occasionally tuck a blossom behind our ear (although it can be hard to get them to stay!)

This is a digital oil painting I did inspired by one of my photos.  I painted it in Photoshop using digital brushes designed to simulate real oil-painting brushes on a canvas texture.
