Picture a Day #211 – Watercolored Sunflowers!

Here is the latest on the sunflowers in my organic vegetable garden, which I have chosen to paint in watercolors. I began by drawing them en plein air, and put some color on them in front of the garden as well.

Last night I worked on the petals, leaves,  and the background, and then this morning I continued to create texture and depth. I am using Arches hot press paper this time, and noticing that I’m not using as much paint. This paper is definitely not as thirsty as the cold press paper that I used for my last project.
