New Daffodil Painting

Posted in Art Work, and Peeking Behind the Easel

I love painting daffodils, especially at the end of winter while waiting for spring to arrive!  This is my newest painting of daffodils.

I used a 12 x 4 x 1.25 inch gallery wrapped canvas to focus the painting on just the daffodils. I painted the sides of canvas to give the entire painting a bit of a 3D feel.

My inspiration was photos that I took at the Philadelphia Flower Show a few years ago.  The display of daffodils was so cheerful and beautiful.

I enjoyed painting the yellows and oranges of the flowers and the greens of the leaves. There are touches of purple and  gray-blue in the shadows of the petals and leaves.  You can find this painting listed today at my Etsy shop.  I am looking forward to seeing daffodils outside shortly as spring finally arrives. 🙂
