Sunflower Song

Oh how I love sunflowers!!  Their cheerful, radiant heads beaming sunshine bring a smile to my face each time I see them!  Today, I have layed in the underpainting with a large brush, and have followed up with palette knife work.  My favorite knife was in my paintbox in the trunk, so I pulled out my favorite alternate knife - the Princeton catalyst.  I love the marks it makes!  And, when I loaded my palette, I pulled out an old tube of liquitex oil paint - cad yellow light, and it is super rich and opaque!  It is the perfect petal highlight for these sunny blooms!  So glad I grabbed it!  Painting number 1350 on 1350 days :)
