Oh, yes, Nolan.  This sunflower is really nice.

Is the stem missing?

Hope to get to do this one soon.

Thanks for a good lesson, Nolan.  It's a bit different than yours because I put the flower upside down and had no raw umber so my colors are off.  My blue background photographed as grey.

All in all, it's still makes me happy.

Mea, I love your sunflower. It reminds me of the ones that grew in the marshy part of the lake where I grew up. O0

Thanks, Steve.  Hmmm... Now I remember a marshy area that had huge sunflowers growing there.  Next time I am back on Cape Cod, I'll have to check it out.  It was in the old historic part of the town, so it quite likely might still be there.

Mea:  Your sunflower is great.  The color is nice and bright.  You could add a touch of sunlight to the tips of the leaves.

Beautiful sunflower Mea.  O0   I love the way your brushstrokes in the background give an effect like rays coming from the flower!  :heeha: :clap: :clap: :clap:

Thanks, KathyK and Val.

Those diagonal brush strokes were a mistake that ended up looking good.

This one, says level 1,  ???  I scraped off and repainted the right side three times and every time, I repainted it just about the same.  No way can I mimic the actual flower.  It looks better in a photo than in real life.  Maybe these tones are playing tricks on my eyes.  :2funny:

Thank you njnjgirl and Jay. After "really" looking at it again, I can see that the light and dark petals, cause it to look concaved, very cool.

I think you have done a fabulous job Ginger :yippee: :yippee: :yippee:

It must be from all the repainting practice ;D
