Sunflower Season


 Warm yellow petals
Smiling coppery faces
Sunflower Season

I LOVE sunflowers and think they have so much personality.  Sometimes their round copper faces stare boldly and sometimes they turn shyly away.  Such a beautiful dance.

This watercolor is painted on 300# Arches paper.  It's done in a style of many, many transparent layers. It's approximately 8 x 9.5". 
Hope you enjoy this painting! 


  1. This is a very striking variation of the sunflower idea! I like your portrayal of them as more of a serious flower to be reckoned with. These two sunflowers seem like they have a little relationship with each other. :)

  2. Hi Katherine! I'm glad you see the "relationship"--I love to imagine the interplay with elements in my paintings--and these guys just seem to have a personality. Thanks so much for your comment!
