About a month ago, as the weather was just starting to turn cooler, I brought home a lovely bouquet of sunflowers. Arranged in a vase, I set them by the french door in the sunlight, and captured some photos that could possibly be paintings. I particularly liked the photo which was the starting point for this painting--it was receiving dappled sunlight and there were beautiful darks at the bottom of the flower. I made this sunflower the "star" and quieted down the two in the background. This watercolor painting is 8.5" x 11", done on Arches 140# acid-free watercolor paper. It is double matted to approximately 14.5" x 17".
