Sunflower Garden 24 x 36 Inch Oil Painting

This is a 24 x 36 Inch Sunflower Oil Painting done in CYM no K (Cyan (Phthalo Blue), Cad Yellow Light, Primary Magenta and no Black) plus White.  I started experimenting with this palette a few months ago and have been slowly learning its oddities.  I really like the warm yellows, rusty oranges, brilliant reds, turquoise blues, vibrant purples…and I am even starting to get the hang of greens.

Orange and Purple Flowers 18 x 18 Inch Still Life

I have no idea what these flowers are.  I have them in planters outside.  The purple are some kind of salvia, but I am at a loss with the orange.  At any rate, I thought I would put them on canvas.

Sunflower Still Life 18 x 18 Inch Oil Painting

This is a rework of a previous painting.  Originally, the painting was purple with yellow sunflowers.  I changed a few things.  The most obvious being that the vase is now orange.  I personally like it better because I enjoy lots of color.  The orange made my day.  However, my mom, for example prefers the previous version.  To each his own, especially with art.

This is the previous version.  I was working with compliments and kept the painting mainly to purple and yellow.
