This week my focus has been on tweaking the composition, getting the sunflowers shaped and placed, and starting on the color of leaves, seed head and petals.
This is how it looks today.
It is far from completion, but you can see the painting’s direction.
If you haven’t been following the blog, I planted Van Gogh sunflowers from Renee’s Garden seeds in the community garden for the purpose of using the flowers as the subject of an oil painting. Last week I harvested and photographed the sunflowers. I will continue reporting my progress through to the painting’s completion. I hope you enjoy watching it evolve.
