Turning Heads by Kay Wyne
Original Oil on Panel
I was given a photograph of a sunflower garden, and that was my jumping off point to start this painting. I wanted it to be dramatic and strong, so I layered my darkest darks to make them as dark as I could get them. I wanted the petals to overlap and be irregular. One of my studio mates commented that the sunflowers in the foreground look like the are turning their heads….thus, the title for this floral painting is “Turning Heads”.
