Hibiscus blues

ACRYLIC  -  16  X  16  INCHES
HIBISCUES BLUES

Bien oui, je me répète!  J'ai peint une fleur d'hibiscus à l'aquarelle en Septembre,  mais j'avais le goût
de refaire l'exercice autrement.  Celle-ci est faite à l'acrylique avec doigts et pinceaux. Même s'il fait 0 degrés dehors et  que les feuilles tombent des arbres comme une petite neige douce, je peux choisir ma saison chaque fois que je sors ma palette.  C'est génial! ;0

I know, I'm repeating myself!  I painted an hibiscus flower sometime in September, but I wanted to try the exercice differently.  This one is painted in acrylic with fingers and brushes.  Even if it's 0 degrees outside and the leaves are falling like snow, I can choose my season everytime I prepare my palette. Isn't it great! ;0

Very pretty, Helen. It's getting cold here too. The weather man will let me know when you are sending some down from Canada. :)
Were you able to see the Aurora borealis a short while ago? I keep meaning to ask you that.

Helen H Trachy a dit…

Hi Carol! No, I haven't seen a thing yet. But we're on the south shore of Montréal and don't get to see aurora borealis much. One of my sons though, who works in Kuujjuak, in the Ungava Bay, does send me beautiful pictures of them. Can't wait to send you some white stuff!!! lol

Ma chère Helen, c'est géniale cette peinture! Tu as réussi avec tes couleurs une lumière, un resplendissement, une ambiance, même un tact d'une apparence douce et très, très poétique. Ça c'est superbe, bravo!

Je t'embrasse
