Sunflowers and Cobalt
Original Oil, 10x10 inches, Gallery Wrap Canvas
I decided to paint something different today. Normally I don't paint a lot of flowers; but this arrangement was sitting in my studio, begging for attention. The weather has been gloomy and dark for two days, so it was fun to paint these sunflowers. After initially laying in everything with a big brush, I went back and gave more texture to the flowers using a palette knife. I'm happy with the colors, and may try a different arrangement next time.
One of the best features of painting with a palette knife is -- no brushes to wash!
