Sunflowers and Irises in Oil

Sunflowers and Irises
12 x 24 Oil Painting
by Pat Fiorello

Been working on a series of sunflowers lately and I had a reference photo from a still life I had set up awhile back of sunflowers and irises.

I had used it for a commissioned painting earlier this year where the client was looking for a watercolor painting.  I loved the composition and wondered what it would look like in oil but hadn't had a chance to get to it yet. I have also been experimenting with palette knife painting lately and thought this might be a great opportunity to finally take on that sunflower painting.   the final painting of "Sunflowers and Irises" is shown above. Below is a close up so you can see some of the texture from the knife work.

Here is the watercolor version based on similar inspiration.
