Sunflowers in a Pickle Jar


12×18 original pastel on sanded paper

Contrast!  It is a powerful design tool.  Yellow is opposite of purple on the color wheel.  Orange is opposite of blue. Warm green contrasts with cool green. I just had to paint this collection of flowers that a friend brought to me when I was having a bad back day.  I put them in a pickle jar because I couldn’t find a vase, then I started painting, bad back or not.  I was inspired.
