    Thank you Patricia for your lovely photo of the sunflower field, although out of my comfort zone decided to have a go with a quick sketch in moleskin sketchbook, I changed the horizon line so there was more land than sky and liked this composition, there is a lot to improve on in this sketch the background trees and buildings for example but I was just trying out an idea and was pleased with the foreground.  Will probably do some more studies on this reference photo

    Oh Annette, this is exquisite! You’ve show me what I have to grow toward. I feel honoured that you would have a go at my photo. If you do more studies from the photo I hope you post them.

    Annette, this is just beautiful! I love the looseness of it and the sunflowers are awesome as is your sky. 😀

    Annette, your colors are perfect.  I am wondering which yellows and golds you used and how you created the rich, dark greens.  Will you be doing this again on regular watercolor paper rather than moleskin?  I’d love to see the result.

      Thank you Paula, I do intend to do this on some Arches paper possibly and a larger version and will share if happy with how it turns out!  The yellows are Cadmium yellow (I dont use this very much as its quite opaque but seemed to work here) and Quinacridone Gold. The greens were mixed from these 2 yellows and ultramarine and winsor blue, was actually trying to keep to ultramrine but was absentmindedly dipping into the winsor blue

    Such a beautiful piece, loose and fluid. Simplified while retaining all the necessary details.  Thanks for sharing Annette.

    This is gorgeous, what a lovely loose style you have, and you really give the feeling that this field is packed with sunflowers.

    Beautiful, Annette! Lovely fluid, transparent washes. And to produce such a wonderful painting on Moleskin exemplifies what an accomplished artist you are. Always a pleasure to see your work. 🙂
