Tropical Colors for Hawaiian Hibiscus

All of the state flower doodles I’ve done in the past have been places where I have lived, (except Tennessee, It’s just so close to Alabama I decided to include it). Now I’m going to work on the states where MrE has lived, and the first on my list is Hawaii!

I would love to go visit a tropical location sometime, and Hawaii seems ideal since I wouldn’t need a passport to go, and it would be a cool reunion trip for my husband as well. In the spirit of bright tropical colors, I drew heavily on pinks and oranges for my doodle of a Hibiscus. I also brought back the negative space duck, and used the silhouette of a wood duck. Check it out:

These colors will punch you in the face!

The photograph isn’t particularly good. I think one day I will need to invest in a scanner, or figure out how to use my Wacom tablet effectively.

I also colored in another of my old doodles. I mentioned it in an earlier post, and now it is complete. I do love the green-footed pink duck.

Lacey heart doily is super awesome.

Next up on the State Flower list is Georgia, Texas, Kansas, and Indiana!

  1. I love the colors in the Hawaiian Doodle. The hibiscus is beautiful. the negative space Wood Duck is a great idea. There are a lot of cool ducks out there. Pink purples and greens are very nice.
