This watercolor was un-named and unfinished in a box. I finished it before my hand surgery mentioned in the previous post.
Red Ginger is a common plant found in Hawaii. I am always fascinated by the leaves I paint.
I am showing the progress of my paintings on Instagram @paintingsbymarcia and on Facebook on my Plumeria Paintings by Marcia page.
I gave my daughter, Carla, step-by-step coaching for this 16x20" watercolor painting of Kauai's famous Tunnel of Trees. She draws well and you can see this skill especially in the tree trunks. Her painting will also be available at the craft fairs I do.
The calendars were a best seller at the recent Koloa Plantation Days fair.
This latest 18x24" watercolor called Birds of Paradise will grace the cover of my 2023 Wall Calendar. The bush is in my yard and makes for a good subject.
I am calling this watercolor "Down to Ke's Beach." If you have hiked the trail up from this beach to Hanakapiai Beach or Falls or the longer 11 mile hike to Kalalau Beach along the Na Pali Coast, you probably said, "Thank goodness! So happy to return to Ke'e Beach!" Photo Credit to Wilson Barrett at Wilson Barrett Photography.
I had fun painting this wise turtle on the beach! The original watercolor is 22x30" and it was sold at my most recent craft fair. Prints have been ordered and will be on this website in a couple of weeks as well as at the fairs and in my paintingsbymarcia.etsy.com Etsy shop.
