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.
