Overnight this beautiful Hardy Hibiscus flower opened up in our yard to full bloom, the others are still buds. The color is Cranberry Crush and the flower is about 7″ across. This was difficult to paint in that it is a very flat flower, almost like a disk with very little depth. I should have added some background color to add depth. Still a favorite of ours during the late summer. Holbein watercolors in a Stillman and Birn Alpha Sketchbook.
