Egon's Field

Egon's Field
mixed media on canvas
(sold)

It took a while to think of a name for this painting, but then it became obvious that "Egon" should be in the title.  The sunflowers were inspired by Egon Schiele's gouache and pencil drawing called "Wilted Sunflowers".  I have always loved the quirk in his drawings and wanted to capture that same quirkiness in my sunflowers.  You can see my sketch of the sunflowers in the photo below in my sketchbook sweetie book, which was done some time ago while studying a book I have of Schiele's watercolors and drawings.  You can see the book HERE.

    1. Thank you Julie. I enjoyed the flowers so much, I thought it would be fun to start playing with different ways to paint them in my sketchbooks. Hugs!

  3. Lovely painting - I like your composition of smaller things are big in the foreground and larger things are smaller in the middle and background.
    It's always fun to see the workspace and hear the creative process too!
