Helianthus West

What is it about sunflowers that make them so paintable? I wanted to really look at structure with this series, while keeping color naturalistic. 8x8 on cradled panel.


  1. This has to be one of my favorites! Especially like the composition and abstract quality of the shapes, dark and light.

  2. Anne, Strong, graphic quality and composition. Fine work. Like the way the black makes the green leaf pop.

  3. Thank you Libby, you noticed the things I tried to emphasize! Diane, I went back to that leaf and brought up the chroma- thanks for stopping by and commenting.
