This oil painting was done on stretch canvas with Windsor & Newton and Grumbacher oils paints. The local farm stand had a beautiful display of sunflowers for sale in addition to fruits, vegetables and flowers. Using a series of reference photos I sketched the design onto the canvas using soft charcoal sticks. After covering the canvas in thin layer of burnt sienna the layers of paint were added, allowing for 3 to five days of drying time before more details could be painted . Working dark to light until complete. A drying time of 3 to 6 months is usually required before a protective varnish can be added.
