This is a 16 x 20 inch still life of sunflowers in a very cool orange vase. I am loving the colors in this painting. The orange and gold are really nice against the blues and greens of the background. Unfortunately, we have a man down once again and it looks as if only one sunflower cares. Bummer.
This is another attempt at using a knife that was too big for the size of flowers I was painting. The good news is that I got a plethora of new painting knives and they came in yesterday!!!! My hope is that if I can use a complete sweep with an appropriate sized knife I can paint not only cleaner, but faster! This painting was a pain!
