Daffodils Revisited






































This 8X10 oil still life on Gessobord was painted in class.  I got a pit in my stomach when I walked in class and saw the still life set up was daffodils.  My nemesis, the dreaded daffodil, was back to torture me.  Though happy with it's turn out,  I can wait another year before having to paint them again.  Taking a painting class definitely takes you out of your comfort zone.  This painting SOLD from my Esty Shop.

  1. Moo, I think that's just stunning! You shouldn't be afraid of the daffs, you've conquered them! I particularly like the background and the lightness on the purple that gives a nice feeling of depth. Bravo! (And, yeah, doesn't class push you - right out on a ledge for me!)

  2. Margie, you did just great. I also cringe when I see them in a set up and have yet to master them. But I will.............someday.

  4. You did a great job Margie, but I understand what you mean as I fight with them too. I have always blamed it on the acid yellow because so much green reflects back into them. My successful endeavors have been when I used the ones with the slightly more orange trumpet.
    Mine have never been as good as yours. So congrats.

    1. Thank you Julie. Orange daffodils are definitely easier.
