Sunflower III

This is my favorite of the three sunflowers I did for the exchange. The second one is below this, and the first one is back in the older posts. Maybe practicing on the other two helped, and maybe I should have done a few more while I was into it. This is also 2.5 x 3.5.

Another beauty. So lively and colorful.

Anita Davies said...

I can't find #1 but agree, this one would be hard to beat...It is beautiful!!!
Perhaps you could post all 3 together side by side?

Desiree said...

Wow, gorgeous, you can paint girl!

Joan said...

Jo - Thanks so much!

Anita - Thank you. I'll have to find my photos of them and I'll try to do that.

Desiree - I love sunflowers and tried painting larger ones. I was never happy with the way they came out. The tiny ones I like a lot. Thanks.

These are just so frseh and lovely and bright and filled with sun!! LOVE THEM JOAN!!! I can't make up my mind which I like better -- so I'll take BOTH!

Joan said...

Jose' - Thanks so much for visiting and commenting.

Lin - I had such a good time painting the sunflowers. It is funny that they were easy to do small, but I wasn't happy with any of the larger ones I did. Thanks.
