I am working on an 11" x 14" sheet of masonite. I had a painting teacher a number of years ago who wouldn't let me use a brush. I had to paint with a palette knife. So I decided to use that approach on this piece. The first thing I did was cover the masonite with a 50/50 mixture uf burnt sienna and lemon yellow.
I wanted a neutral complimentary background so I mixed a grayish purple for the ground area.
And now for the main show. Still only working with the palette knife I started to add the sunflower.
The image I took is not that great but you get the idea. So far I am really happy with the results.
