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.
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.
