Girl with a Sunflower
Girl with a Sunflower – 14 x 18 inch acrylic on stretched canvas (SOLD, thank you!)
One of my last paintings of 2017 is one of my favorite paintings I’ve ever done. Not quite the style and color combination I am usually known for, this has more of a Dutch Masters feel to it. And there’s a reason for that. I have seen the floral beauty that Fleuropean.com has been creating for a while and when I saw a photo of the beautiful model, Sam Coupillie, with this pose, I knew I wanted to paint this portrait.
Many thanks to Emily and Suzanne of Fleuropean, Kreetta Järvenpää, Anna Doshina, and Sam Coupillie, for your permission to use a remarkable photograph. I hope I did it justice!
