MY COMMENTS:
Not usually a painter of flowers, but I was asked to paint some sunflowers for someone.

MY QUESTIONS FOR THE GROUP:
Should there be three rather than four, or does it work like this?

I think the composition of four is great and you've done a fine job combining the forms. Where I think you could get an improvement is in the background which seems a bit forced: yellow on the left; red on the right.

Totally agree. The flowers look great.

Sunflowers have been painted so many times, and I'm amazed that painters still seem to be able to find something fresh in them as you have here.

I like warm background, but the light area should be on the viewer's right, since the light originates on the left and would naturally land on the right.
