Just shaggy yellow sunflowers.  I think I see a heart.

Sunflower Garden 24 x 36 Inch Oil Painting

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.

Sunflower Still Life 18 x 18 Inch Oil Painting

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.

Sunflowers Soon 24 x 24 Inch Oil Painting

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.
