This painting was inspired by Nancy Medina. I get access to a lesson every month for a year from her. I am really enjoying it so far. She is a serious flower lover. Of course I was excited that the first one was sunflowers, but lesson two was peonies and those are pretty fun. When I get the hang of those, I hope to post some!
Just shaggy yellow sunflowers. I think I see a heart.
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.
Playing with painting knives and canvas that is too fat for my easel. I do love sunflowers.
This is a 16 x 20 inch oil painting of red sunflowers in a green vase.
This is an oil painting still life of yellow sunflowers in a blue vase against a violet background sitting on a yellow table. This painting is 12 X 16 inches.
This is a 12 X 16 inch acrylic painting of red sunflowers in a green vase. I like the complimentary colors of the red sunflowers in the green vase. At the same time, I like the way the purple table, blue background and green vase flow together and almost stand down to let the red pop.
