Stars of Summer

Original Watercolor - 11x15

As most of you know I LOVE painting sunflowers - you can have so much creative fun with their overall shape, big centers and crazy petals. For Stars of Summer I began with wet paper and randomly applied color all over. When everything was dry I began defining the flowers by painting around the shapes (negative painting) and then added more definition to the sunflower centers and petals. A bright, happy painting to remind us all about summer.

I have shared this post on Paint Party Friday and Show and Tell Saturday- check out the other artists.
