Morning Sunflowers 12x9 oil


I just completed a 4 day workshop with Randall Sexton through the Debra Huse Gallery in Newport Beach, California. It was lots of fun and wonderful. I totally enjoyed learning from and watching Randy paint. He has the most amazing brushwork in his paintings along with atmosphere and edgework. His values were "spot on".
One of the unexpected joys of a workshop are the people. This was an extremely talented group of hardworking artists. Lots of conversations and shared wisdom made for a great workshop.
This was the first still life. I wanted to work loose with attention on my edges.
I will share more over the next few days.

Nice to see that you and Dana had a great time and your painting is lovely. this must be the week to paint sunflowers (although I only painted one ...)!

Wow. I want to take a workshop with him, too! I love how solid the sunflowers feel! And, yes, the value changes are excellent. I looked up close, and the darker petals are reddish! Nice.
