Brusho Sunflowers ~ xPost Florals/Botanical


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. I'll enter this in our county fair starting next week for their special fine art division for sunflowers.
C&C welcome

Nice! A very dreamy feel to it. Interesting process.
Bet you could do some nice poinsettias for a Christmas card using this method.

Lovely work... I hope the country fair people love it. It is so beautiful, it needs being viewed.

Thanks Lamar and that's a good suggestion I'll put on the back burner.

Merri, many thanks and so far the fair goers like it.
