Three bloomsPosted: April 29, 2013
The first daffodils opened in my garden today and as with everything that blooms or buds this week, I had to get out there to capture it. For the first time I experimented with painting flowers on hot pressed paper. I’ve been using reams of the stuff for the children’s book I am illustrating but I’ve never tried it for flowers and I quite like the effects you can achieve. Although many painters consider the accidental backwashes and blooms you get on this paper an annoyance, I don’t mind them at all.
