"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
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!
