This pretty hibiscus was painted en plein air from this cutie in my garden. I used a palette knife for everything but the thingie sticking out of the flower-whatever that's called.
Yesterday, our plein air group met at Sarasota Bay again. I really don't like painting boats very much, but in the end I liked the way this painting came out. The challenge was to simplify the scene, which really meant you needed to eliminate a lot of "stuff" in order to have a successful painting. As you can see below, there was a lot of stuff in the scene that needed to go.
