Sunflower Tea Party
The 'Sunflower Tea Party' was on. A threesome would be the term for this. The big one was all in a clamor about proper manners during a tea party. Come to find out this all stemmed from the 'Tea Parties' of April 15th. So, with a little re-educating them we proceeded with the sketch. They are great subjects aren't they?
I never tire of these beautiful specimens and their special place in our landscapes. This process of watercolor, using positive/negative painting, is always fun and works my brain. Anyone who said painting didn't demand thinking just hasn't been in my world. The process again is healing to me. I used an analogous palette for the most part. Of course I used my artistic license to change anything the subject told me to change. How much more fun can this be. Happy painting!
