"Mitchell’s lavish brushwork is characterized by a robust and tumultuous lyricism. She often applied paint energetically, yet her images were slowly and deliberately built. A synesthete, she played music and read poetry in her studio, using sound as a source for radiant and evocative colour. She was seeking, she said, "the feeling in a line of poetry which makes it different from a line of prose."
She painted many works entitled "Sunflowers." The one below is called Sunflower VI, done in 1969. Click here for more about her.
