Sunflowers full Sheet Watercolor Painting Update 5

Update before this:

I posted my latest update and then the one before that so you could see the difference. I have done a lot of work on this even though at first glance it may not look like it. The biggest thing was adding some warmth to the shadows. I also added another layer to the background, and many layers of yellow to the petals some warm some cool. As I build up the shadows you can begin to see the depth that it creates. A couple little tweaks and the left hand sunflowers will be done. Then I will concentrate on the main one. You can see the process how my centers start out with blue (my husband says you are not leaving it blue are you lol) and then I will glaze over top until I get the desired value and color.

  1. Un trio de tournesols qui embaume mon coeur ce matin… Il est toujours très intéressant de voir la progression d'un travail et le vôtre est particulièrement précis et délicat…
    Je suis très impressionnée par les aquarelles…
    Il va falloir que j'arrête mon admiration autrement elles finiront par tourner, mais finalement je me demande si elles ne sont pas faites pour me faire tourner la tête!!!
    Vos jaunes sont lumineux… un très beau contraste.
    gros bisous

  2. I love it so far, Krista. I love WIP..seeing the slow process until you see that finished piece.! I laughed when your husband asked…"you're not leaving it blue..are you?" because my husband questions me sometimes as well! Looking forward to the finished piece!!
