Sunflowers – the most Ukrainian flowers of all

Sunflowers are so beautiful, energetic and energising, they are like small suns inside your house. Solar batteries from which I feed:)

I got a surprise bouquet of these sunny flowers recently and of course had to paint.

In this still life I used acrylic paints and a slow drying medium. Acrylics are convenient but they dry out so fast – I find it frustrating. The medium slowed down the drying process just a touch. It doesn’t compare to oil at all.

Anyhow, here’s my process and the finished painting.

“Still life with Sunflowers”

Acrylic on paper, 12×16″ / 30.5×40.5 cm
