Inspired by the hot summer and the morning sunshine. The sunflower always mean to me the sunshine and joy of the summer.
Inspired by the life that get us a little bit lazy during the hot periods of summer. That is why I wanted to paint the petals falling down on the center of the sunflower.
From a photograph that I took into a nursery close to Prairieville.
In Louisiana. Summer 2012. Painted in July 2012.
Wet watercolors on dry paper. No prep to the paper, directing washes in the way the petals go.
