Sunflowers X

 


Lots of looking, stepping back, walking away, layering, and letting go. My only regret is not painting them in their own separate book. 

I've painted ten sunflowers. We shall see what tomorrow's brush brings.

Working size (single page) 9 3/4 x 8"

Acrylics: Holbein, Sennelier, Utrecht and Golden (heavy body)

Painting knives

Brushes

Princeton Catalyst Tools

Looked at: 

Joan Mitchell

Vincent Van Gogh

Reading:

various Joan Mitchell catalogues 

Remberance of Things Past by Marcel Proust
