Brusho Sunflowers


Our local fair is having a special section in the Fine Arts division for sunflowers so this is what I managed to do; 11x15 Brusho/watercolor on Lanaquarelle 140 lb hot press paper begun yesterday then completed today. These imaginary sunflowers were negatively painted with a 1" flat brush. Brusho was applied first to a very wet blank sheet using Burnt Sienna, Yellow Ochre, Moss Green, and Gamboge, then plastic wrap put on top and let dry overnight. That was removed and then blooms, petals, and leaves were painted around doing their edges until a composition emerged, so no pencil drawing and no reference used. Burnt Sienna Brusho made very nice sunflower centers.
C&C welcome

Re: Brusho Sunflowers

I really like this kind of painting, it has a beautiful freshness about it.
I could see this selling quickly!

Thanks Maureen! I like to do those spontaneous ones to see what develops. Tomorrow it goes to our county fair.
