Flowers have an expression of countenance as much as men and animals. Some seem to smile; some have a sad expression; some are pensive and diffident; others again are plain, honest and upright, like the broad-faced sunflower and the hollyhock.
- Henry Ward Beecher
Besides daisies, one of my favourite flowers to paint – Sunflowers. Done with no preliminary sketching – putting only colour, starting from the centres of the flowers, then the petals, the leaves and, finally, the background tonal values.
