Hibiscus – Acrylics
The first thing is that I’m not a realist painter. I admire artists who do realist art, but my goal is to convey the essence, the vividity and the energy of my subjects. It is the red of the petals here, and their shapes which caught my eye.
I know that the fuzzy green around the petals looks a bit strange. I’m not sure whether I want to leave it as it is or whether I want to work on it some more. It has the look of a kind of “aura” around the flower which I like. On the other hand it may look a bit sloppy, and that I don’t like.
