My last trip to Hawaii was in March, and to the Big Island (also known as Hawaii) in 2012. I started a series of paintings depicting some of the flora and fauna of the Big Island then and just signed the backs of 16 paintings today. I decided to use acrylic paints on wood panel. The following photos illustrate some steps in the process of painting the Kamehameha butterfly on the hibiscus tree, and the Hawaiian crow. Please refer to Hawaii Project Paintings in my Gallery to view all of the paintings.
