My Sunflowers Vs. Van Gogh’s Sunflowers

Posted by | March 16, 2012 | 1 Comments

I loved Van Gogh’s sunflower so much that I have to paint one based on his. Can you tell me which one is Van Gogh’s and which is mine? 🙂

I paint this in a 5”x7” Canvas Panel. It was so much better experience painting on Canvas Panels than watercolor paper. Smoother, higher quality and no buckles!

I drew the sunflower based on Van Gogh’s oil painting first, and then added vivid orange colors in different values. I painted the background in blueish green. I absolutely love my sunflowers and I feel so nappy and fulfilling. It’s satisfactory and rewording that you can paint what you love!
