Next door's sunflower

Can't say it enough - love sunflowers and this is no exception. Lovely highlights. Like the way you have put in the leaves.

Thank you Dennis and Adele. The sunflower provided great support for a nearby honeysuckle so some of the greenery is honeysuckle leaves and stems. Sunflowers are so full of life and cheerfulness aren't they. I hadn't painted one before and it was a challenge to do it without much detail but to still look 'right'.

I'm in the middle of painting sunflowers Caroline. I'm painting them quite detailed as I do with many of my flower paintings. However I have lately seen around 3 or 4 different sunflowers more loosely painted and I really like them. However I shall continue and see what I end up with.

A cheery hello! Love the way you have done the petals.

This is lovely Caroline, these sunflowers make great paintings especially done large like this.

Glorious Caroline, love the form of the petals.

Adele, hope you're having fun with it! I got a bit lost at times but that's the good bit as well, isn't it, problem-solving. Thank you to Gudrun, Dennis, Satu, Fiona and Sarah. It's so encouraging getting your comments.

Fabulous, look forward to these beauties Caroline.
