Reaching for the Sun palette knife painting

Reaching for the Sun
Provence Sunflower painting
18x24cm (approx 7x10)
oil on 3mm MDF canvas panel

After my recent trip to the lavender and sunflower area I had the impetus to finish some paintings started last year. The sunflowers were much smaller and blooming later than normal and did not give their usual showy display. Luckily, I have the photos from last year to remind me. Often the sunflowers are way ahead of the lavender, but probably because of our cold spring this year they will need another couple of weeks. Maybe a good excuse to go on another trip.

About this painting
