This is a 24 x 24 Inch Oil Painting. I have the Sunflowers blooming in the back yard but waiting on the Cosmos. The Holly Hocks are on their last legs.
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.
It’s that time again where I anxiously wait for sunflowers to bloom. It will be different this year. I had way too many sunflowers for the space and was ready for a little change. Instead of an abundance of sunflowers, I have lots and lots of holly hock with sporadic sunflowers around the yard. I’m not sure I will like not having as many this year (I think I won’t), but I don’t think I will mind not having to tear them down at the end of the season. I have a plan for next year and will get my sunflowers back then.
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!
This is a 16 x 20 inch oil painting of wildflowers including my favorite, yellow sunflowers. This oil painting is done in both painting/palette knife and brush.
I am working with compliments. My favorite part about that is that the color mixing from lower layers don’t add unwanted contamination. For instance, yellow sunflowers on a blue background can result in green in the petals when painting in one sitting. Yellow flowers on a purple background make a nice grey that looks more like another tone in the petal rather than contamination.
