Original Watercolor by Ellen Jean Diederich
Inspired by the Sunflowers blooming on the way to the lake and this painting began as a landscape demo with the focus on the fields. Then I planned my “Building your Center of Interest” workshop and realized the painting needed one. Attacking that problem made it a total mess, and I put it away. Amazingly, adding a violet glaze to the piece as a warm up exercise turned it around. The flower petals at the top melded with the sun. Feel free to make an appointment to see Sunrise in person. Notice the horizon in this painting. Despite my problems, focus and a good attitude helped me enlarge the purple tree line and play with the flower edges that interrupted it.
This 17 3/4″ x 30″ original is sold.
