I love summer – the longer days, the warmer weather, the clear skies and lush landscape – everything is so colorful!
Today’s painting is a sunflower from a different angle. A fun painting given the side perspective of the sunflower. Adding more drama to the petals by using a palette knife and thicker paint to draw the eye to the left. Wielding a knife is scary, but rather effective. Scary because it’s like stabbing the painting and hoping you don’t hit anything vital. En garde Sunflower! Good thing it’s not facing me. . .
