Not moving along so quickly. (Have been helping an elder client transition from Rehab.)
This one will be 22 x 30". Nice to get back to plumeria after many koi, wave, and Kauai landscape paintings. (Small prints for those are on paintingsbymarcia.etsy.com). Starting light with the flowers. Composition is from 5 photos of this variety so will add shadows later so everything makes sense.
A little paint on the lilies and some darks areas around the lily pads.
Small prints are at the craft fairs and in my PaintingsbyMarcia Etsy shop. Web address is
I am going to work my way through the numbers for the koi paintings because it is easier to identify one from the others! This one has a lot of lily pads and lilies as well. I am using a loose style for most of the painting.
This might end up as 5 Koi in the end. Trying for another loose watercolor at least as far as the water goes.
I finished this painting before starting the hibiscus and used 3 colors.
This watercolor of the Kauai tunnel of trees will be 16x20" and will eventually be sent to a friend in Wales I have known since we were pen pals over 60 years ago!
