Sunflower


I started another pastel of woods the other day and it wasn't going well at all, so I ran the paper under the faucet and washed out all I had done. This is Wallis sanded paper and it's pretty sturdy. When it had dried, I grabbed a photo of a sunflower I had hanging around and painted that instead. I forgot that the size paper I was using needs some cropping to make it a standard size, so if I frame this it will be expensive, but I like all the colors.

Jane,

I love the movement in this one, as if the flower and background elements are all being blown by the wind. Very nice with those touches of magenta, also!
