Red Sunflowers by Natasa Vretenar
I love painting many things, and places. One of my favorite places on Earth is New Mexico. I try and visit NM whenever I can. I will hopefully go there this summer again. In the mean time here is a painting with two different kinds of sunflowers that grow wild in NM. They pop up everywhere - some are completely yellow and some are with orange/red coloring like the three on the top! Real pretty and colorful.
There is a group of artists that paints from a NM reference photo. It is really fun to see how different artists interpret one reference photo. Some of the reference photos are quite a challenge too.
