Yellow Flowers for the End of Summer

Summer is hanging on here in NE Florida and the end of our local sunflower crop is in sight.  I have been working in watercolor exploring the different yellows that can come through two hues I have in the paintbox.   These two flowers are on the opposite ends of the spectrum as far as intensity of color so it was challenging to tone down for the hollyhocks after painting the sunflowers.
