Sunflower experiments

Mollie from the Painting Friends forum I belong to described to us a technique of dropping dots of colour and mopping water to create loose, vibrant sunflowers.

So I thought I would experiment to see if I could pick it up - and it was only on the fourth attempt that I felt it was loose enough to be really vibrant.

Once you've seen all four, please do tell me what you think... and which is your favourite!


  1. I like 3 because it is well-defined, but I like 1 being a bit abstract and 4 for being totally abstract. (not real sure abstract is the correct word here, but I am sure you understand what I'm saying.)

  2. I guess I'm an oddball :) I like #1 then #4. :) I just love watching you paint.

  3. I can't decide which I like better. They all have different feelings of control and looseness.

  4. I like them all - but I rarely do "favorites" in any aspect of my life, especially when it comes to Beauty. And there are all beautiful.

  5. thanks Pat for visiting and commenting on my blog.. It's always nice to hear from other artists.. I am looking through your blog and find your work a joy... and so is Missy. I think I'll be here for a while... BJ

  6. Interesting to hear your preferences. Thanks for sharing them :)
