Gouache Painted Sunflower Tutorial

Sunflower, sunflower, standing straight and tall,
Sunflower, sunflower, you're the tallest flower of them all!
Sunflower, sunflower, when your seeds fall to the ground,
Sunflower, sunflower, by the squirrels they'll be found!
 We recently harvested our sunflowers,
and I just loved the look of them 
lying there with a kind of shabby 
chic look to them.

 I'd like to try preserving one of them.

One of the pictures I turned to greyscale 
so that I could paint it with Gouache paints 
which are opaque watercolors.

  1. Very nice painting, Aileen.

    Those sunflowers are humongous! You'll be drying the seeds, right?

  2. That's amazing.
