Sunflower #22, Acrylic on Watercolor Paper, 10"x9", NFS
Day 24 of the Thirty Day Challenge. I like this painting for its looseness and energy. Plus it's just plain fun - fun to do and fun to look at. It does have some compositional and execution problems though. So I plan to revisit this idea again. To get the color effects I used more of a watercolor approach to applying the color. It's very transparent, so no room for rethinking anything.
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.
