It’s hard not to love sunflowers. They’re so bright and cheery! I painted this one for my first paint pARTy.
But if you don’t live in the Sacramento area, you can paint it too! I’ll post the full tutorial later today with a link, but here are the steps, just so you can see how easy it is.
- basecoat petals with Yellow.
- apply Antique Gold on one side of each petal and the tips. Then make a curved line, or two, from the brown center.
At this point, your sunflower may not look too pretty. Don’t worry. It’ll all come together by the end.
You make like how it looks after this step. If you do, leave it alone. If the Raw Sienna looks to strong, add another coat of Yellow. You can do these steps over and over until you get the look you like. Adding more layers simply adds more dimension to the flower.
