Pat's Sunflower~WIP

My line drawing w/beginnings of a value study

After I had my way with this flower in Elements 6.0

The original image..a real beauty :)

One of my Facebook friends, Pat was kind enough to share some photos of her sunflowers with me. I chose one of the images and put it into Elements, played with different crops, applied various filters and adjusted the colors. I finally came up with an image I like. I've just started working on the line drawing and value study. I'll be starting out with watercolor but I'm pretty sure this will wind up as a mixed media piece before it's over.

You are on a roll with these. This is a lovely reference image and I know in your hands the final piece will be amazing.

I hope so, Jeanette. I seem to be leaning toward more graphic effects. I may have to get out my Frisket film and atomizer bottles again and do another sprayed watercolor.

Stay tuned, may get interesting.;)

Me, too, Maggie. I'm thinking there will be some colored pencil and marker involved with this project as well as the watercolor.
