Sunflowers - WIP continued




The top half of the painting's green foliage is now laid in with wet, fresh paint in one direct application, using every blue including manganese and Midnight blue (American Journey) in my palette mixed with same yellows.  This bottom is a close up detail of lower left flower and its leaf at the side.  I am encouraging runbacks, or blossoms to form when more water is in the brush than paint and touched to an already pigmented area.
