sunflower






I didn't draw this flower it started out with a yellow wash. Then each morning i would add more color and detail. I used a photo as of sunflowers as my study but the colors directed my every impulse.



It was really exciting to look in on the painting each morning and add a paint here and there. An art fix for the day before work.

So it was a true work in progress! Incredible to think you started out with yellow, it is the most colorful and happy sunflower I have ever seen. Great work Cathy

Beautiful color, Cathy--as always, jewel-like. And that green in the center is amazingly gorgeous!

You and your impulsive self is what makes your work so interesting and vigorous. Love the technique of adding a little colour each morning to this one. I would never be so controlled - see you have two opposite sides to your personality after all and it makes a great combination Cathy. Glad you will find more time to paint during summer hols. Can't wait to see what you achieve during your R&R period.
