Sunflowers WIP 1

Sunflowers – 18 x 24 – Acrylic on Wood – Reserved for Mayberry Fine Art

I love sunflowers. In this painting the flowers are writhing like flames.  I love the sinuous motion of the petals and leaves. Maybe I will think of a better title that involves fire in some way.  And I love the palette I’m using – all the cadmiums are complemented beautifully by cobalt green. It has such a lovely blue cast to it, the contrast between it and the oranges is just delightful. :)

I’ve started on the last section of this painting – the background. I think it’s a little to warm and too light, so I’m going to do some more work on it next session. I do like the way the shapes have come about though.  :)

I’m also starting to think about a new title for it. Possibly ‘Passing Storm’ but I’m not sure yet.
