I painted these sunflowers a few months ago but wasn’t happy with the results, so I thought I’d paint them again using a slightly different color scheme and a highly saturated background. This painting is a based on a tutorial in Fiona Peart’s book, “Vibrant Flowers in Watercolor.” The background technique is based on a tutorial in Janet Whittle’s book, “Watercolor Roses.”

Full of movement and color! The center color is a lovely surprise.
Thanks, Elena, the painting really came together with the addition of purple.
Very cool painting, Jill! I love the purple centers!!
Me, too, Beth. Prior to adding the purple it was looking a bit boring.
Love the updated version! The addition of the vibrant background and the same vibrancy tecnique added to the flowers centers brings a wonderful transition to the painting! I think you should continue to explore other possible uses for this technique. GREAT,
Thanks, Mom. You’re my biggest fan!
Beautiful colors. I love how this turned out.
