I painted this during my ‘residency’ at Burton Agnes Hall. Macmillan Cancer Trust had planted this field of daffodils as one of their ‘Fields of Hope’.
Although an unusual choice of subject for me I wanted to try and portray lights of hope that the Trust have provided and continue to provide for so many people.
It was painted on Saunders Waterford 140lb NOT using Windsor & Newton artists quality paints.

As a painter of light, legend and landscape I am indebted to the wonderful medium of watercolour which gives me the versatility to incorporate many different styles in to my work.

    Incredible watercolour Glenn, the detail you achieved is truly amazing but that can be said for all your pieces. (Nice complimentary colours in this one)

    Lovely, unique!

  • Thanks Leslie. It was an unusual subject for me – I don’t do flowers!
    However I have always been impressed by the dedication and kindness of the Macmillan nurses and have done events for them in the past.

    I love the way you have captured the sunlight filtering through, giving that sunlit quality to the flowers. Very nice!

  • Thanks Tash – I have to admit that the painting was a bit of an expiriment. I went down to the field of hope and made some sketches of the flowers. But rather than doing a literal painting I tried to convey something more. Happily the experiment worked out up to a point!

    This is very clever…leaves so much to the imagination and yet the viewer is drawn in by some very deliberate marks on your part. Bravo!

  • Thanks Ann – you got the point!

    so beautiful in its simplicity!…I lived in the snow fields in Australia for some years and painted water colour snow daisies so many times……..and this is such a reminder! thank you!

  • Thanks very much. I wasn’t sure about my flowers so kept them as simple as possible..glad you enjoyed the painting.
