Van Gogh Sunflowers

Van Gogh’s Sunflowers inspired this sunny composition.  Overlapping sunflowers were drawn in a variety of sizes.  A thick layer of blended craypas filled each flower.  Complimentary blue-violet watercolor was used in the background.

  1. Nice use of color. What is craypas?

    • Craypas are oil pastels, available at craft and hobby stores. They are softer than crayons, and blend easily. Crayons work well, too, as long as the color is applied heavily.
