FLOWER PETALS IN YELLOW


I put some color on the petals of the sunflower painting.  I think this may be as far as I am going with this one. It is just a class demo and experiment for the students and won't be anything more.  So many people paint sunflowers - nothing new here and just a copy of part of a watercolor book painting.

The picture looks a bit fuzzy - I must have moved when I snapped the pic.  The students will be working on their version of this Tuesday morning.


A local Ohio attorney is filing an indictment against Puxatawney (?) Phil, the groundhog, for intentionally committing fraud by saying spring would be early.  It sure isn't around here - cold, windy, snow flurries, brrr....

Poor Phil! And poor you, with all that winter weather in Spring. But your sunflower is a lovely harbinger of warmer weather!!!

Gracias, Carolos!

Thanks, Kathryn. Yes, Puxatawney Phil needs a lawyer! ha ha

Phil made it to the TV news in the UK too. What is this world coming too??? Love the sunflowers.

"and won't be anything more.".. why are you so sure? why we are always the most serious critics of our work? I think the flowers are lovely and support Phil in his spring browsings.

Very, very nice!

Lovely bright image to cheer up a cold and wet weekend. Thank you, Rhonda.

Well, Laura, as a criminal law professor (who was an attorney) said, "It's a litigious society!" ha ha

Irina, I meant it cannot be more because it's a copy of someone else's work from a watercolor book :)

Thanks, Vicki and Vandy :)

And my gracias went to Carlos (sorry for the mispelling of your name - just a typo).

I love autumn, winter, spring...the early stages of spring, the late stages of Autumn. So not a summer fan though.

RH Carpenter said...

Ah, Sherry, I love autumn and spring but am not a fan of winter.

Amazing how different the painting looks once you added the yellow! And, yes. Phil really messed up. Even here in SC!

RH Carpenter said...

Yes, the color does add a lot - although I almost liked it as white.
