Learning how to draw a sunflower doesn’t mean that you have to have just one centered in the middle of the paper, all by itself. That doesn’t make for a very exciting composition.

We can get inspired by Vincent Van Gogh, who I think made about 17 different versions of his sunflower paintings, all with different arrangements. Instead of arranging them in a vase though, students can experiment with their own layout by balancing a simple large, medium and small one. And if some of them are so large that they go off the page a bit, that makes things more interesting too!
