an oil painting of a yellow hibiscus flower by chris beaven



I painted a this hibiscus in oil while showing my other artwork at the zoo fence in Honolulu. I couldn’t start a figure painting, or at least I didn’t want to try in the limited time I had, so this flower was a stand in. What would it be like if I treated a flower as if I was painting a portrait?

If you would like a print of this painting please send me a message with what size you would like here.
