'Gossip Girls'
An Original Oil Painting
by Claire Beadon Carnell

'Gossip Girls'
Oil on Archival Linen Panel
6 x 12

I love the sunny faces of sunflowers, and because
they are almost always grown in patches it seems as though
they have their own little where everyone 
knows everyone else...and everyone also knows everyone 
else's business!

This painting was done with a limited palette of
Prussian Blue, Alizarin Crimson, Cadmium Lemon
Yellow and White.  I also used an underpainting mixture
of Ultramarine Blue to block in the dark abstract shapes,
and I really like how bits of it peek through.

If you would like to see more of my work,

interested in purchasing any of my paintings you see

A real STUNNER, Claire!
I do like the abstract shapes along with the realistic sunflowers!
