Thanks for hosting!
I love to paint sunflowers, and really tried to make this one dramatic.
It was painted in Artrage with really thick and juicy oils, and lots of palette knife.
I really wanted to give the impression of a dark stormy sky and that really high contrast light that you get when the sun peaks thru the storm clouds. But oh well.
Should I crop out more of the sky???
C&Cs always welcome!

Haha Elaine - I'm doing mine in artrage and with oils - maybe they'll meet in the programme!
I really like the emotion in this - it's so lively.:)

I agree with the other posters! Great job!

Yes, this is great Elaine, very dramatic and moody...for a sunflower. Well done.
Beautiful work!!! I love the strong contrasts and I fully agree with Li: very dramatic and moody!!! If it was mine, I wouldn't crop it at all, I like it just as it is!

Great sunflower and the colours of the sky sets the mood of windy and overcast

That dramatic sky sets the stage for more drama to come at the castle...love it! Don't crop it.

Very lively with a brooding sky. Nice.

I like it just as it is. Drama abounds.

You've achieved a very painterly look with the digital medium. And it's certainly dramatic.

Yes, dramatic and lively. I'd crop a bit of the sky to focus more on the flower. Right now the sky and flower are pretty equal. Fool with it and see what you think.

I would crop some sky and make flower focal point - lovely juicy color in this digi Elaine.
