Sunflower #14, Acrylic on Watercolor Paper, 14"x8", NFS
Continuing on my exploration of the intersection of abstraction and representational painting. In this painting, I created a sunset using a square brush making sure that the colors extended to all areas of the paper -orange in blue and green, and vice versa. Then, I added the sunflower design in black lines , filling some of them afterwards. I like the effect. I do have to do some more work on this concept - I didn't get the silhouetted flowers quite the way I wanted them, nor the light struck ones. Overall, though, the concept worked.
Because I am not completely happy with the craftsmanship on this one, this painting is not for sale.
I am a painter living in Vermont. I've been painting for about 20 years learning as I go along. In the last couple of years I've been learning a bunch of new painting techniques and experimenting with new subject matter.
