Great photos, Helen, I'm having a hard time deciding, I might have to do several! But I can't pass up a sunflower, and after the weather we've been having, anything sunny and yellow looks good to me! It's been colder than usual and yesterday we had a dusting of snow and winds, immediately making the roads very slippery.

So here I used watercolor pencils and watercolor. A little drawing, a little water, a little watercolor. Started with a rough sketch in the direction of the photo, but I didn't stick much to the photo, just tried to enjoy the over laps and the negative space. I didn't like the composition, but after scanning it, I turned it around a few times, and decided it looks better this way. :angel:

It's just a little 9x12 on Canson paper.
