Sunflowers and Irises in Oil

Sunflowers & Irises
12 x 16 Oil Painting
by Pat Fiorello

A few weeks ago I did a couple of demonstration paintings for the watercolor classes I teach. I arranged a small bouquet of sunflowers and irises to paint from life.

The flowers are long gone, but I decided to try the same arrangement in oils from a photo I took that day.

 Here is the oil version as well as a similar composition done in watercolor ( that painting has since been sold, but the oil is still available.)
