Completed this medium sized painting during the weekend. This was my first flower painting. I struggled with the colour a bit. I will be staring at other paintings of sunflowers now, to see how other painters handle the petals and colours.

Looks great - I like the feel of the sunlight in the background

what a nice painting --

It does look like the light is from behind the flowers, sure makes the flowers stand out in a very nice way -- it gives a look of almost a transparency to the petals, very nice. I like that look and is one I don't see very often. thumbs up

I really like your Sunflowers painting. I kept waiting to put into words what it is that I like, but I'm not sure exactly what it is. It's very different from other flower pictures and really appeals to me. Thanks for showing it.
