It looks like you have got a fair bit of detail in your painting.http://skins.hotbar.com/skins/mailskins/em/google_emoticons/emoti_280.gif

Thanks Billie, Gayle and Garry, I really misnamed this flower, It's really a sunflower as you can see. It's size is 11x14 and I wish I had used a bigger canvas for more impact. Let me tell you that the center was really crazy making, but I think it turned out ok. Thanks again for sharing with me, I really appreciate it.

I like the colors, and the highlights and shadows, very nice.

I agree about bravo to you for tackling that seed head. In fact the spiralling of the sunflower's seed head follows such a precise mathmatical formula that it would be "crazying" to try to replicate it...you sure succeeded! I also like the shadows across it. Well done and welcome to the forum.

You did a wonderful job on that seed head. I love the size and the shadows, etc. Wouldn't change a thing. Bigger would not necessarily make it any better! This just sings "ME!" "ME!" which sunflowers do daily in following the sun. I love it!
