Sunflowers at McKee-Beshers

The sunflowers are in bloom this week and I was not going to miss them... even though it's close to 100 degrees out.  I did a very hot, very quick painting in the sunflower field this afternoon.

Although I was focused on the flowers right in front of me, in the photo it looks like out in the field one flower is head above the rest, "look at me!"

I worked on this a bit more in the studio to deepen some of the contrast -- necessary because painting in the sunlight blinded me to some of the flatness of the values.
