Red Sky Sunflowers - WIP watercolor

This work in progress starts out using 3 yellows, splashed wet in wet on 140 lb cold press watercolor paper.  I used aureolin, new gamboge, and quinacridone gold.  When dry I drew various sunflower heads, leaves, and stems free handed.  My goal is to have a red toned background rather than a blue sky.

You can see the yellow washes better in this step in which I began laying in mixed greens using same yellows and gold along with Prussian blue and ultramarine.
