Sweet Red Flower

Fresco Watercolor Painting on Board, 8" X 8"
Unsold paintings can be purchased for $95 plus $6 s/h: from the artist

Red heliconias are just so beautiful. I love the waxy, wispy shapes that grow up through the tropical foliage. These beautiful flowers are true favorites in the islands. And because of the bright, primary reds and primary yellows, I decided that I wanted to make the background like a soft focus wash of deep green, aqua blue and sun kissed lime.�
