Artist's Description

W&N watercolour on DalerRowney 300gsm
.
“Light-enchanted sunflower, thou
Who gazest ever true and tender
On the sun’s revolving splendour.”
~ Pedro Calderon de la Barca
.
The sunflower resembles one huge flower, but did you know a single sunflower head hosts hundreds of tiny flowers called florets? The plant is a rather thick, green stem sticking up out of the ground around 10 feet (3 meters) tall with a few leaves growing from it. On top of this tall stem is what seems to be a single enormous flower with yellow petals and a brown centre. But this flower is actually known as the head of the sunflower, and is not a flower at all, but rather a bunch of them. The yellow petals are actually protective leaves that cover the centre of the head while it is growing. The brown centre of the sunflower is composed of a mass of hundreds of flowers, all growing individually, and from where each sunflower seed will originate.

Dedicated to all Sunflower-lovers!
