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!
This little 6 x 6 inch sunflower garden oil painting will go to Kaeleigh for her 8th birthday. Yay for cake!
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.
I painted some sunflowers. Surprise, surprise. This time however, I am showing them on a photo app I was messin’ around with. This 16 x 20 oil painting of sunflowers reminds me of my dog, Trixi. It was a painting I was working on the day she died so it will be special to me just like she is. It kinda looks like her too!
I really love this little sunflower painting. It goes well with the “Sunflower Awe II” I completed a few days ago. I like the simplicity in the colors. The blues are cooler than what the picture shows. The vibrancy depends on the light situation but I would describe the blues as more turquoise and aqua against golden yellows of the sunflowers and the olive tones in the stems. The picture below captures the true color of the flowers and stems.
I was in the mood for a really busy sunflower painting. This oil painting was difficult to photograph because of the texture. No matter where I moved my lights or what angle I shot from, I couldn’t get a picture I was happy with. The painting itself is really cool. Every little brush and knife stroke stands out. I like looking at it from the side.
