I’ve been waiting for these big daisies to open so I could paint them. I picked a few yesterday and put them in a vase with some other blooms, but after repeated tries I couldn’t make an interesting painting from them. I struggled with them as much as I struggle with painting sunflowers. Just big circles that I can never make into a decent composition. In the end I went out to the garden, where I should have sketched them to begin with.

    Ha! I am in the same boat. I picked a bunch of daisies yesterday, tried to paint them in a vase, and had no luck. I will follow your lead and head outside in the morning! Lovely piece Shari!

    I have some daisies of my own to paint, so I like seeing how you handled them. Lovely greens!

    After I finish your on-line workshop on “water”, I guess I’ll have to tackle my own daisies-maybe I’ll paint them next to some water!


  5. I love the flow of greens. Interesting viewpoint. We’re you sitting on the lawn?

    Lots of negative painting – but such a positive outcome! Lovely, lovely sketch.
    And I laughed out loud at Alison’s comment about rolling over and downward dog, so relatable!

  8. Daisies are so natural in the garden, I am not surprised that you had to paint them there. It is a beautiful painting too!

    Thanks. I’m glad it wasn’t lost. Great talking to you today. We should do that more often.
