I think I would like to paint sunflowers more. I have tried to stay away to expand my flower horizons but I have missed them! I painted this painting for Let’s Paint New Mexico Challenge #19.
This is a local ditch bank in Corrales, New Mexico with the Sandia Mountains in the background.
I love this painting. The colors are vibrant, the brush strokes are pretty and the subject is my favorite.
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.
