Sunflowers, Watercolor and Plastic

SUNFLOWER JEWELS
Watercolor - 8x10

I began this painting by wetting the paper and applying paint randomly in shades of yellow and green. I then placed plastic wrap over the entire surface and let everything dry to create texture in the background and on the sunflower. When all was dry, I used negative painting to define the petals, flower center and leaves. The final piece suggests sparkling jewels of light all around the sunflower.
