A cheery sight for sure; those sunflowers. We are just about in the Cabin Fever mode of winter here - icy, grey, cold. Here is my start in acrylics 8 X 10 painted over last weeks Market place, painted over a Golden retreiver on canvas. :D
Hey, I said it was a start. :rolleyes: Will be back tomorrow. I really like this ref pic - will spend some time with it and hopefully end up with something I don't want to paint over!

Don't paint the golden retriever! Can't wait to see the yellow paint added :)

Looking forward to those sunflowers, I paint over my duds all the time, it adds texture and depth to the new work that I like and sometimes I even get something I want to keep.
Now you have me intrigued, is that the dog's nose I can see or the start of a sunflower. :D I'm looking forward to more.

Interesting start! I'm with ya on the paintovers; saves space and money and I only rarely regret doing it, plus the texture improves for each subsequent painting.;)

Thanks for the comments - Hope you are not too disappointed!
Not done yet - not satisfied with them.
Oh, and i changed the apple tree on the RHS into a 3rd sunflower.:D

Thank you all so much for your kind words.
Needs some fixing up and such

Love your sunflowers. It is a good idea to use an old painting as an 'underpainting'.
02-16-2012, 02:08 AM
Looks great nice and homey!
