I consider this painting to be experimental. This was the first time I began to incorporate the sunflower into the clothing. Here I made the mistake of using a marker right down the center of her face. In my next painting I drew the figure with a pencil. Surprisingly it was harder for me to draw with a pencil than a marker.
As I mentioned before, I love photos of the artist's workspace and paints. This is the paint of the fantastic artist Markun taidetta. Among other things he paints beautiful landscapes. I love this photo of his 'van gogh's'.
I speak about this in my book 'would you go to van gogh's party - if he was serving ham hocks with grits and gravy? well? would you?'
