Red Hibiscus - Day 19 of the 30 paintings in 30 days challenge

Jewel Red Hibiscus
Palette knife painting
Oil on box canvas with sides painted black
30x30x4cm / 12x12inch

An alternate title for this painting was 'Before the Hail'. I painted this en plein air in my garden in brilliant sunshine. When finished, I took a trip to the shops. While there the heavens opened and we had a tropical downpour. What I didn't know was that a hail storm was happening at home. When I returned my garden was covered in white and many of my plants had been shredded by the hail, including this beautiful hibiscus.

Some close-ups
