This Sunflower was the first of a few flowers and trees I photographed yesterday and the only one that I liked. I noticed that a couple of bees were sitting in the centre, so I tried to take a photograph of them but they flew off one by one. I decided to take a photograph anyway as this sunflower looked beautiful in the bright sun.
When I looked at it on the computer last night I was intrigued by the way it looks as if it has had a ‘painted’ effect applied to it caused by the saturated colours. The distinctive dark orange markings look as if they have been drawn in. I’d actually like to be able to paint a sunflower like this if I had the talent!
