" Springing to Life"
Before I went on my recent USA tour I was made aware of the new Daniel Smith Watercolour shades but I hadn't had time to play with them fully before my flight to my first tour destination. Once there I had a great time playing and experimenting with the new colours from Daniel Smith..
But on my return home I couldn't resist trying a particular colour out, and this afternoon whilst painting daffodils I discovered that the new " Lavender " shade by Daniel Smith is absolutely perfect for adding shadows to my floral work. It contrasts fantastically with the yellow and orange shades in the narcissi seen above. Because it is opaque it gives a superb effect underneath the trumpet of each flower in this new work in progress.
I intend to share my excitement over these new colours as soon as possible on my blog. If you haven't already discovered this new collection of gorgeous colours don't be left out. They actually sold out very quickly in the last art store I was teaching in , in Florida and to be honest I am already addicted to them.
More news on these gorgeous new colours later.
But below you can see the tube of colour I used. Its' a beautiful addition to my already over flowing palette of inspirational shades!
The new lavender shade by Daniel Smith works perfectly for adding shadows to soft florals and its great for the petal tips too!
