Tried a different style with these.



Suggestions for improvement appreciated.

Pretty sunflowers, Mary Lou.  Love the looseness of it.

Such a dramatic flower to paint.

 :heeha: Lovely Mary Lou  O0   I particularly like the colours and method used on the petals in the top flower.

I think a bit more contrast in the petals of the bottom flower would make it sing. Love the looseness.  :clap: :clap: :clap:
Cheers, Val
