A couple of years ago, someone planted a few dozen daffodils in front of our church. They were so sunny and happy looking, I had to take photos to paint at a later time.

This original watercolor is 8″×10″ on Arches 140# cold press.

    Oh my, this is just lovely. Your yellows are so light and clean and the dark rich greens are the perfect back ground. An instant fav!

  • Thanks Diane. I used a very limited palette on this to keep the yellows clean.

  • Thanks Bev, I’m glad you like it. It took me a few tries before I had a daffodil I was happy with. It’s so easy to get mud with yellow flowers!
