Thinking in bright colors


8x10 pastel over watercolors

I started this painting as a wet in wet watercolor. The washes suggested flowers.Since I have been wanting to paint sunflowers, I decided to work with these beautiful yellows. I have been looking at sunflowers in my yard all summer.

  3. Thanks Diana, I love to paint with blue. The sunflowers are abundant here in WNC. The flowers lend a cheerful aspect to the landscape.
