Hibiscus

Free Printable #157

Hibiscus flowers are great for colouring since they have such large open petals. This first image I coloured using distress inks and a water brush. I don't think I quite managed to get the vibrancy of colour you'd typically associate with hibiscus flowers, but it's not too bad. The second image was coloured with copic markers, and while the vibrancy is there, I think it might be lacking a little depth. A few more shadows and highlights could probably fix that though. Anyway, have a play around with the image and different mediums and see what results you get. Have fun!
