A little bit more of a formal approach today, with blending and a slower style. I like it too.
I think the vase (which was a thrift shop find) turned out nicely. As I was painting I was thinking of how when you try to take a photo of a bunch of kids, they are all looking everywhere but at the photographer. "Look here, guys! Face front!"

Rough and Tumble Sunflowers - NA

Rough and Tumble Sunflowers
Oil on Stretched Canvas, 16" x 20"
Available at $100 plus $18 shipping.
Reworked on Jul 30, 2014.

This is a bit of an experiment. I normally smooth and blend pretty much the entire painting, but today I just left things "brushy" to see how it would work. What do you think? You can see all the brush scrubbing throughout. I'm not sure if that's a good thing or a bad thing, but it's different, anyway.

Continuous Line Sunflowers - SOLD

Continuous Line Sunflowers
Watercolor and Marker on Arches Watercolor Paper, 12" x16"
SOLD at $22 plus $8 shipping.

Using the same sunflowers in the same thrift shop vase as yesterday, I simply turned the paper around, and had a much better time. In Sketchbook Skool this week, we are working with continuous line drawing (where you don't lift the pen off the page, but backtrack and cross over if you need to), and watercolor, and this was my homework submission.
