"Daffodils in a Gold Vase" floral flower painting still life fruit flowers oil on canvas

8 x 8"
oil on canvas

The trick to painting daffodils is to put that yellow on the canvas first - before any other paint. Even before your underdrawing - or else do your underdrawing in bright yellow!

Beautiful and Bright! I love the yellow and green together... at first I thought you must have purchased these flowers, until I read that you picked them from your yard! I was surprised.. nothing blooming here yet :-)
