Sunflowers in Acrylic

It's so cold here, I had to think warm and sunny thoughts for awhile. Here's a great summer workshop painting project that introduces Van Gogh, still life and value. I let the students design their own vases for their sunflowers. I always have a vase of sunflowers for the students to view. We discuss lighting and shading. I premix the paints and have everyone work from the same color palate so I can demo the shading as we go along. These are always a favorite and the parents can't wait to frame them.


  1. Love these! Beautiful and very frame worthy!

  2. how pretty! Great job! :)


I get so excited when I receive a comment and I do read each and everyone of them! I wish I had time to respond to each one personally. Thank you so much for visiting and I hope you will be back soon!
