Late Summer Sunflowers

I thought it would be fun to do a series of related paintings for late Summer and Fall.

The first group of 3 paintings are
 of sunflowers.  All the canvases are 8" x8".

I began by making 3 different sketches of sunflowers up close.

I next started filling in the backgrounds.

I used a mix of two blues for the background.

Two yellows for the petals.

And green for the leaves, brown for the stems and seeds.

One final touch was to outline parts of the petals with liquid gold for a little sheen.

Happy Painting!
