The background will be a bit exciting this time around. This is a start on the layout.
This is another variety of plumeria which I first photographed in the National Traopical Botanical Garden on Kauai a number of years ago. The plumeria are a dark pink with an almost orange center.
The Katie Moragne plumeria is one of the first plumeria varieties I painted a long time ago and is being used as my logo.
I may not have to drive to photograph plumeria someday!These are cuttings mostly from the trees along Nawiliwili Road which were planted by Richard Moragne. He is a former sugar plantation manager who propagated aver 200 varieties of plumeria on Kauai as a hobby. I am keeping them indoors for rooting because the temperature got down into the 50s a week ago.
Decided to go a little looser with the background.
I will name this painting when done. This watercolor is 22x30" or a full sheet as we artists call it. I will finish the painting and decide whether or not to put in a background since it is a very busy composition. I did notdo a background with my "Sunrise Bouquet" painting.
