Hot Pink Sunflower

9 x 13.5 watercolor on Saunders 140 lb cold press paper.  It is so hot here that the sunflowers have turned pinkish red! Always pushing the norm, I decided to switch from golden yellow to this hot color, keep the background and leaves cool blues and greens and add touches of its local color yellow orange.  When dry, I splattered very large purple mauve into its center.  This painting is SOLD.
