Daffodils . . . again


As I painted the pastel version, I wanted to do the blossoms large, so this is on a half sheet, rather than the quarter sheet sizes of the other versions. I painted the background blue with watercolors, then did the flowers over the blue, so maybe this is technically a mixed media painting. I think the center of the bottom trumpet needs to be a bit darker. This is the last pastel for a while because I started a watercolor today.

I agree that the bottom trumpet would be better a bit darker but this is a wonderful painting. Love that beautiful blue background.

I like both the pastel and the watercolor! I have only tried my hand in oils for flowers. If you like to look I have a past called Celebrity Collection, (Jan.09) with a slideshow of 24 x 24 flowers.
Happy painting!
