Sunflower and Swirls

I went to the Biltmore in Asheville to do some research on a few things this weekend and shoot some photography for future paintings. The flowers there are absolutely amazing! I shot over 450 photographs for reference material. I couldn’t wait to get in my studio to paint! This is the first one that I managed to finish after my trip :-). It is a 12 x 24″ acrylic on canvas of one of the Biltmore sunflowers :-). I am fairly new to acrylic painting and am just really having fun with the medium. You really have to paint fast with it to get the fluidity and movement you want with it.
