THE PLANT PARADE: floral challenge for October

Hi everyone, I'm your Host for August and this month the Plant Parade theme is....YELLOW

Yellow flowers are all over in everyone's gardens, from the sunflower to nasturtium, vegetable flowers like the pumpkin, gazania, roses,irises etc.
I've chosen several photos of yellowflowers and you are welcome to use them OR you can use your own or those from the RIL.
Please don't post your yellow flowers until "Reveal Day" which is the 25th of August. You may use any painting/drawing medium for your YELLOW entries!
Reveal day is on the 25th of October and you are welcome to discuss your painting beforehand but please stick to the reveal day
An additional challenge could be to make a 3D yellow flower?

Tulip from Lostart

Rose from Parnassio

Banksia and zinnia from Dewi

Sunflower from Lisilk

My own zinnia

Sugarbush? a pixabay reference

Looking forward to seeing your submissions! Have fun!

Love yellow too!

I painted that rose for my sister's Golden Wedding Anniversary in 2010!
Thanks Christel

Such yummy yellows, Christel! Marigolds are a fave of mine and they are still blooming here.
Thanks for hosting.

Great challenge... and difficult - not easy to master yellows.

Beautiful photos.

Thank you, Christel.

Re: THE PLANT PARADE: floral challenge for October

OH, Yellows! As we're in the fall here, and leaves are going to gold and reds, I miss the yellow flowers...like those of spring. I don't know if I can get a photo up here or not, blasted computer issues with not uploading my photos anymore, but I hope to complete something at least. Sunny yellow...summer colors...just what I need to lift the dark colors of the sky.

Blessings, LynneDe

Yellow hibiscus would look gorgeous on a painting. I do hope you have the time to participate, Lil!

Maureen, I like the yellow rose and will try and do it soon. Love yellows. I didn't take a photo of the yellow Hibiscus, didn't have the camera.
