Sunflower Watercolour painting by Conny JAGER
Summer Sigh
18 x 24

The hint of the red barn in the backyard, mixed with the bright yellow and blue of the sky is a primary colour dream team. The heart of the sunflower is an incredibly challenging and complex abstracted pattern of shapes that took so long to paint! I had no idea of the challenges this painting would give me, but I am happy with the final result, as I feel like this sunflower has a personality and uniqueness that takes it away from the stereotyped image we have in our heads.
