Sunflower Solo

What are more cheerful than yellow sunflowers?  I find I'm mentally taking note of each stand I find, to return another day and paint them when I have more time!  I did not even start with a sketch on this one - I simply jumped right in with paint!  Once I had layed in the masses with a brush, I then turned to my favorite Princeton Catalyst for the palette knife work.  My favorite knife was in my paintbox in the trunk of my car, so that also pushed me towards this choice.  I'm so glad it did!  I love the way these tools make marks!  I simply set it down on an edge, pull and lift towards the center, and it leaves thick, rich paint in it's wake in a way no brush could.  Painting number 1349 in 1349 days :)
