Morning Hibiscus

Oil on canvas-board. Oil usually takes 4-6 months to completely dry and thus, this painting was framed without glass-cover.

You can see the effect of light on the color. I wanted to capture the beauty of the morning light as it illuminates the flower. I almost got the desired results.

I love working with oil. It's very fluid media. It gives you freedom to merge colors for dramatic effects or completely dominate one shade on another.

As long as there is harmony in the colors, the oil paintings are very effective in conveying the mood of the painting.
