Daily Painting 1439 Red Hot Ixoras Tropical Flower oil Painting

Its oil on masonite, 12 x 16 inches.  I didn't have an idea of what to paint today, I have been watching a schefflera flower so I went outside for a closer look and on the way back in saw my ixoras so I decided to paint them instead.  Its almost all knife and has really nice textures.

I guess I'll do the schefflera another day.

Gorgeous colors, Lori! Is this in a pine type of plant or tree? A slight headache messing with my vision this a.m. but I can't tell if I'm seeing pine needles or leaf veins. Either way it is beautiful and not something I've seen before.

Ixoras are little red flowers with four petals. They grow in little clumps on a bush with normal leaves with a yellow vein going down the center.
Mine is half wild, I have seen some that are hybridized that have round balls of the little flowers, growing sort of like hydrangeas.
My father planted our bushes, they live a long time with little care needed here in Florida.
