Big Pink Daisy by Leslie Gustafson

I was eager to paint another flower up close after Big Blue Clematis (see below) and this pink Gerbera daisy caught my eye. Southern California has an abundance of Spring flowers. I hope you enjoy it and it reminds you that Spring is here or coming!

12 × 14 W/N watercolors on Arches paper.

    This is just GORGEOUS, Leslie!! I’m so impressed with your paintings, my friend! You’ve done such a great job with the intricate shading in the center, and the subtle blending of color in the petals! An outstanding watercolor, most deserving of being featured! ~ pat

  • My goodness, you are so gracious Pat! Thank you for such wonderful compliment! The inside of the flower was the most challenging but letting go of overfocusing on detail ( which can really get me stuck) helped. Thank you again!!!:-)
