Big Island Oleander

oleander

Watercolor, colored pencil & graphite: 4″ x 3″

This flower was on a very large hedge shrub in the backyard of our house in Puako. I finally got a book on the Hawaiian flowers so I could start identifying everything! This is Oleander. The flower is quite beautiful and really different…it was sitting pretty high up on the shrub. I am starting to get a feel for how much watercolor to leave and how much pencil to work in, I was pretty happy with the combination here.
