Well, I have decided to try to make the painting that I sketched in this post. The sketch that I did was in oils. I started the larger painting in oils, but after my initial layer, I decided to do it in acrylics. So, I am starting over with another canvas. Before I do that, though, I need to practice with acrylics, again. It has been a long time since I used acrylic paints. They are very different from oils.
Sunflowers are the national flower of the Ukraine. I love sunflowers, too. They are so big, strong, beautiful, and cheerful. And they provide food and shade.
I am working with the enthusiasm of a man from Marseilles eating bouillabaisse, which shouldn’t come as a surprise to you because I am busy painting huge sunflowers. — Vincent Van Gogh
