Challenge 76, a fresh flower
Pen and ink and watercolor crayons and pencils
These hibiscus (what is the plural of "hibiscus"? Hibisci?) grow and grow and grow down my driveway. If I am not attentive to pruning, they would cover the side of my house and my kitchen window. But I do enjoy their blooms and they seem to thrive in this hot and humid tropical climate.
I am new to watercolors and am having a great time experimenting with pencils and crayons. For this Challenge I worked on actual 140# watercolor paper which I liked much better than the sketch book I had been using. I may have to switch and then bind all the drawings together some way later. Or who knows....I might just have to break down and join the moleskine watercolor community.
