Picture a Day #207 – Sunflowers En Plein Air

For some time, I have been planning a watercolor painting with sunflowers. Recently I began this project.

First I set up near my raised garden bed and drew two of the sunflowers with a goldenrod Prismacolor pencil on Arches coldpress paper. Then I began painting with a layer of Holbein Cerulean Blue.

My next color was Cadmium Yellow Pale, added to the petals and leaves.

Here is a photo of my subject. Next time: some details!
