Color My World

This colorful sunflower painting was finished this evening.  It will be a lesson for the class I teach at Riverside Art Center in Wapakoneta, Ohio.   This painting is painted on Acquerello 140 lb. cold-pressed watercolor paper - a new paper for me which I am trying out.  I purchased it from Dick Blick and it is made in Italy.  So far, I like it real well.  I used about 4 photos to compose this painting and it is 11" x 11".  I tried some new watercolor paint - I particularly like the sap green from Maimeri Blu and the Indian Yellow from Dick Blick.
