Sunflower madness


I know why Vincent Van Gogh shot himself. It was the sunflowers. I am working on a painting that features three large sunflower blooms, inspired by the great artist himself, of course.

I have painted and added texture and added colour and detail and I am not happy with the sunflowers. They are dull, when they should be full of life and light and brightness.

There are four yellows on the canvas plus many variations and still the sunflowers are not right. Maybe the petals are not the problem. Maybe it is the centres.
