Pure yellows

This is a square painting (11"x11") that I did as a demo for one of my workshops this summer.  The yellows of the sunflower are so hard to keep clean...but it is a question of patience..let the color dry completely before introducing the browns/red/purples for fear of contamination and neutralizing (read muddying!) the nice yellows.

Good points, I'll have to remember that. I love yellow flowers, but am always struggling with the yellows and shadows on yellow.

I love all the petals you've worked in on this beautiful piece!
