This painting was done from life from a bouquet of sunflowers that I bought. Spring is really trying to get to Minnesota this year, but it sure is slow. Today we finally had some nice weather, but the wind is blowing....tomorrow may be nice. Anyway, shadows are difficult to paint with yellows...one of my teachers many years ago told me to use green so that things would not get muddy. Some parts of the flower even had a bit of an orange cast in the shadows, while some did appear almost green.
