Doodle Week: Sunflowers

It's time for another Doodle Week!

I need to bust out of this creative slump, so I thought I'd really give some effort and replicate Vincent Van Gogh's Sunflowers.



And here is the original, care of Wikipedia:

You gave yourself a challenge. Hope you had fun with it too. I really like the yellows in yours.

I like it! Looks like it took a while, too!

Very impressive! Doodle? More like a work of art!

Redbeard76 said...

Thanks everyone!

Elise O.: About 1.5 hours. Did it whilst watching the Darjeeling Limited, so that might have assisted with the creativity. Probably wouldn't have taken as long if I wasn't going for the pointillism technique for a good portion of it.

Redbeard76 said...

Yeah, I don't know about the water and earth themes so I've skipped those. I'm not doing one everyday this week obviously, but the sunflowers piqued my interest. And sapped my creative energy.
