Spring Easel 2015
It was so wonderful to walk into my studio this morning and be greeted by the glorious yellow paintings of daffodils from this weeks painting sessions. I had added final details to my loose daffodil watercolour painted in my garden on Sunday and placed more tiny brushwork detail to the long composition that I created yesterday. Leaving both on my easel as a warming welcome this morning has given me such a fabulous boost to start my days' painting today.
Overnight, I had imagined working on a few wildlife subjects for a change but having seen these completed paintings I may just work on more daffodils while I am in the "Spring Fever" mood!
By the way, I have been asked about the paper I use for my floral work.
I highly recommend Bockingford 140lbs where you are leaving backgrounds white and for more Botanical studies. I am in love with Saunders Waterford High White and often use Saunders Waterford 300lbs for my gallery pieces, rough surface mostly!
I hope this helps.
Saunders Waterford paper makes a stunning surface to work on for my watercolours.
