Loved all the Transylvania landscapes and architecture... but with all the cold and dreary weather we've been having and at the end of the long winter I just felt I had to spread a little sunshine...... with this one....

took a couple of hours of experimentation


'A Field Of Sunshine'
A4 canvas textured watercolour paper
Derwent Inktense.

thank you for all yoru comments..

as I look at it I'm thinking, does it need some birds flying across the sky? maybe to the left?

Thanks for that, Lin! We could certainly do with something to brighten us up. Spring's nowhere in sight yet but your picture gives us a taste of summer. Well done!

Great sunflower. Like Li said, I like the far BG. I never know how to handle distant BG and you did an excellent job.

I haven't seen all your works but this one is definitely way up there in my favorites! What a beautiful painting. I love the background that balanced the whole picture and gave even more focus on the main flower.

The sunflower against the sky...good in the face of mystery...beautifully rendered. I love the colors yellow against indigo.
