Today I am working on a 30 x 30 inch acrylic of some sunflowers that I photographed in December. The original photo is currently in a juried selection for acquisition. I am already liking the way the sunflowers have popped out from the background. The "black" is a combination of Phthalocyannine Blue, Yellow Oxide and C.P. Cadmium Red Medium. I am also using a new favorite in the flower's petals that I recently discovered - Quinacridone Burnt Orange. I just love color - and this one is just so rich! This is a good painting day!
