Here is my latest painting of sunflowers. Thanks to Tessp for the lovely photohere (http://www.wetcanvas.com/RefLib/showphoto.php?photo=10795)
45x56cm on boxed canvas

I still need to do one more coat on the background but would like andy C&Cs before I finish it off. The centre area of blue is actually more of a turquoise colour than it shows here but couldn't adjust the colour to get it righ in PS.

Sensational!
Must be especially cool with the more turquoise hue.
I'd like to see more distinction showing the petals forward of the table.
Maybe darken the table a tad there.
Wonderful!

Fantastic piece Marion. Excellent palette, love the background. Would love to see this IRL!! Way to go!!!! :wave:

I can see Marie's point with the few petals near the table, darkening it would give them more depth..... something to think on :)

Marion, lovely sunflowers. The stems and glass are nice, too.

Love the different blues against those yellow/oranges Marion.
The slightly 'lost' petals near the table browns don't bother me - lol - I like some lost edges ;)
