I am so inspired by lush flora of Maui, where we stayed for 1 week last week, that I think I have enough material for sketching, drawing and painting for the rest of the year! I wish I could stay there longer or become a bird and live in a botanical garden forever!
I drew the hibiscus flower in graphite and got carried away.
It is now an illustration for IF's topic "Tension".
Here is a flower in progress and the final drawing made it to the header of my blog!
Here are some photographs I have taken while wandering around in awe in the local Maui botanical garden (which is located off of the way to Hana, btw)
