Red hibiscus. Floral painting

Nadezhda Bogomolova

A gorgeous red hibiscus that has its corrugated petals wide open. The flower, illuminated by the bright sun, magically shimmers from vibrant scarlet red to ruby, burgundy, lilac, purple, yellow orange at the tips of the petals. The flower exudes a bewitching, alluring musky aroma.
