#DoodlewashAugust2022 prompt: Courage. These days the sunflower is a symbol of courage.
Did you know that sunflowers are actually thousands of tiny flowers clustered together and surrounded by petals? Each tiny flower has both male and female organs so they can self-pollinate as well as taking pollen from the wind or insects. Eventually, each flower becomes a seed.
Huh. Makes me rethink eating sunflower seeds!
This was done on glitter paper. I was trying for soft edges and a loose and lovely style. I forgot this paper prefers a hard edge, so my result wasn’t what I planned. I kind of like that.
The glitter doesn’t show in the scan, of course, so the painting is much more interesting in real life. I reviewed this paper a while back if you’re interested in learning more about it.
