Week Nine – Flowers continued

Tulips in the style of Van Gogh

This week I spent some time on a slightly abstracted study of some sunflowers. initially this started as a charcoal sketch but I started to play with colour using water soluble pencils. The cartridge paper I was drawing on wasn’t the best for this and has resulted in a rather wrinkly image which might flatten a bit more when it’s thoroughly dried. I had been inspired to try this by the Van Gogh sunflower copy I did last week in oils and I think this image could work quite well as an oil painting too so I might work that up at some time.
