Day 33: Yellow Hibiscus Update

Following on from yesterday’s theme I thought I’d work on another piece that needed developing further from the initial wash – the yellow Hibiscus flower (Day 29). My aim here was to enhance the flower itself and also to deepen the foliage behind it to make the flower stand out more.

It’s certainly looking more as I imagined it now, although I still think the leaves could go darker… trouble is I’m not sure how to get them there without adding a lot more layers (more research into mixing green needed!). I’m much happier with the flower now it has more depth, but my next challenge will be to get the effect with less ‘fiddling’, some areas were quite over worked in my opinion.
