Are you wondering how I do it? What’s the process that I use to get from  A to  Z? 

 
THE PROCESS in Steps 1 thru 7
  1. Paint Sunflower into the Background image
  2. Add more petals and lines
  3. Add additional lines  – looking for the feeling of motion
  4. Remove some lines – too much activity
  5. Remove much of the Blue color – found center distracting
  6. Strengthened Yellow on Petals
  7. Crop image for a more dramatic composition. Repainted center seeds to strengthen focal area.

There it is… the process I used. Paint, change, add, take away and paint some more. In the end, I always look for a better composition.
I’m really looking forward to hearing your comments and questions.
