'Sunflower #2' 6x6 pastel ©Karen Margulis
It is day two of my Sunflower a Day challenge and I was anxious to get painting today. I love when that happens! Today I cut a pile of 6x6 paper from my scraps. This will be a good way to make use of those small pieces of paper. I also got together all of my sunflower reference photos for this challenge. My neighbor has some huge sunflowers in bloom so I will plan on getting some new photos and new angles. Today's painting is on navy blue canson paper on the bumpy side. I sometimes actually like the regular texture of the bumpy side.
