I painted this sunflower that I saw on a street near me because its petals were blowing all over and I was having a bad hair day myself-so I sympathized with the flower!
I entered it in Wellesley Society of Artists Fall show and was excited to receive the “Margaret Fitzpatrick award for excellence in watercolor! The judge, Cheryl Clinton wrote the following comment “Clear color and strong composition”
I had fun representing the seeds in bright colors from red through to purple. The transparency of the petals was achieved through multiple thin glazes of color.
