Sea House Restaurant Painting

Thanks to Lynn Shue at the Village Gallery in Lahaina, I've been working on a very large, 42.5x70", watercolor for the Sea House Restaurant in Napili, Maui. I started with a trip to the Kahului Swap Meet where I just about bought out one of the flower growers! I took dozens of reference photos and ended up with this as a starting point:
From there, I copied and pasted a banana flower with tiny bananas on the stem, and a new protea to the bottom right over the existing protea so that it would show more. This is the result:
This photo has a little bit of everything as far as color and flower variety. Perfect!

Here are the first few photos I took of the painting in progress:

More to come!
