Sunflower Sketch

Sunflower Sketch  oil  14"x 11" sold
This started as a burnt umber sketch, then I put in the opaque paint to lighten and emphasize the area around the sunflowe only.  I enjoy working this way and have generally been working off of darker backgrounds lately.

I love the fragile look about this, all the muted colors with just a splash of thick paint with stronger hues. Beautiful feel. Mary at her best!
