A couple of days ago, Shelly let me know that she received my Pay It Forward gift so I can post a pic now.
Shelly mentioned that her favourite flower was an orange hibiscus so that's what I painted for her.
I took some step by step pics to show the process of painting the piece.

Step One - I blocked in the base colour and did some line/vein work
Step Two - I painted in the throat of the hibiscus
Step Three - I blocked in the stamen and applied first layer of background colour
