Sunflower Guidance by justcallmemike Sunflower Guidance by justcallmemike

"I don't think there's anything on this planet that more trumpets life that the sunflower. 
Not because it looks like the sun but because it follows the sun.
During the course of the day, the head tracks the journey of the sun across the sky. 
Wherever light is, no matter how weak, these flowers will find it
And that's such an admirable thing, such a lesson in life."   ~  Helen Mirren


Mixed Media on paper
Made on 2 two different papers and then combined together

I love it! Beautiful shading especially in the hair- really describes texture and light source. The sunflower is beautifully painted in a style i love very my much! I see you have allowed two hues run into each other and the detailed centre looks very nice against the simplistic petals!

thank you ... i actually enjoy detailed work and simplistic work at the same time, and try to reflect that in some of my works. Really glad you noticed that :D thanks :hug:
