Sunflower #20, Acrylic on Watercolor Paper, 14.5"x7", NFS
Day 22 of the 30 Day Challenge. Today I started off with the idea of just playing off the center of the sunflower. As I was working this emerged - instead of petals, I got the sepals of the dead flower head. I will probably revisit this painting after the challenge is over to make some tweaks. Nevertheless, I like what I got and I think I will do some more with the seed heads. Since we got a frost earlier in the week, we have lots of them.
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.
