"Sunflower", complete.

And here it is, "Sunflower", 9 by 12 inches, acrylic on canvas.

A couple of people (Yes! A whole couple) have mentioned that they like to see posts on my process of a painting. So here is an example for an "Americana" painting I'm leaning toward calling "Sunflower". I paint from dark to light, with a mix of purple, red oxide and cadmium red dark as the base. The drawing is in white pastel pencil. The different layers of color are opaque. Sometimes if I decide I want a color darker than it turned out, I'll give it a wash of a darkening color.
I'll post the finish soon.

The Lunatheists

The Lunatheists are a Moon worshiping cult who don rabbit masks for their Full Moon rituals, paying homage to the rabbit shape they see on the face of the moon.

And no, none of that is true. I made it up. It's what I do.
