Painting Daisies

Painting Daisies

I paint a lot of daisies. I love seeing them waving in the summer breezes in July & August. Their whites and yellows are so airy and fresh in the summer heat.


I have several patches of them around the yard to paint en plein or photograph for later.  [En plein air is a French expression which means "in the open air", and is particularly used to describe the act of painting outdoors.]

More daisies

Daisies are a simple flower to paint and I like that they can be painted in so many different styles and moods. Give them a grey undertone, and they have a softer, understated feel. Paint them with greens tints and they have a more woodsy feel. Punch up the yellow centers and they have a happier feel. They can be painted loosely  or finely detailed.  It's a great flower to paint!


  1. I love daisies – they were a major flower in my wedding.  I enjoyed reading the different ways you might go about painting daisies.
