Softly Glowing Daffodils :2014



Daffodils softly coming to life in a pair of Spring watercolours
Works in Progress 2014

The weather is truly awful at present. The sky has been constantly grey and the wind has been howling outside my studio window. On days like these I immediately opt for working in Cadmium Yellow to bring instant sunshine and warmth into my studio and art world. I have several Spring exhibitions coming up so I am loving working on my new watercolour collections. And the first daffodils of the year are bravely facing the elements in my garden. I am fascinated in how the stems bow in the wind yet do not break. Theses flowers  add such a blast of colour to an otherwise dull season and are a  delight to wtach as they first appear every year. They make me feel good to see them and to paint them in glorious yellow shades.

Which reminds me. My feature and art competition in the Artist Magazine in April is going to shine a light on working in yellow shades so please look out for it. There are also wonderful prizes . More news and a link in a later blog post!

Even if it's grey outside your paintings always lift my mood with their vibrant colours and sense of movement - beautiful!
