Started it an hour ago.

Acrylic over the stretched canvas, 12" by 16". Used a refference photo from WC! Image library.

Lately I was working with oil only and forgot how fast acrylic dries :wink2: :D

Hi Julia,

I adore sunflowers so very much. Always have some in my garden.

Yours look alive already. Seems they are shouting something. :D

Hi Julia - This ARE August aren't they? :::sigh::
Yellows and blues play well. It does seem like the bouquet is split into two halves.
Is that some baby's breath there? I like the way the leaves come out past the pitcher - you could have a shadow of those leaves on the blue if you wanted. I feel like the two blooms on the right are really stretching trying to get to the edge. The dark centers are working well. :wave:

No, there are no babybreaths, just filled the spaces for right now :)
The two sunflowers on the right : I will shorten their petals and it will give some "breathing" space on the right. It is a gallery wrap canvas though does not have to be framed.Will work on tonight . Did not have time yesterday.

Good work so far. The bottom seems unbalanced.........or maybe the top seems top heavy....anyway shadows across the bottom should fix that :)
