late summer bloom
Pencil and acrylics on 10 x 7 in canvas paper.
It's been a warm sunny September day, and the last day of my two week summer break before returning to work tomorrow. I was wondering what to do with myself while Paul watched the Brazil v Argentina friendly and he said, "Why don't you paint a sunflower?" So I did. This is only the second time I've tried painting with acrylics and I absolutely loved it, not least because mistakes are so easy to paint over! If you'd like to see the different steps of how this painting came to be, please scroll down. Thanks.
