All over daisiesPosted: July 30, 2022
I missed my opportunity to paint the daisies in their prime when they were upright, bright white, and had petals open to face the sun. Now they are shriveled, brownish and flopping over. Maybe that makes them more interesting.
In a composition like this it’s hard to find a focus, but I knew that when I started. Instead I tried to tie them together with a darker background that shifted from red (that’s a purple smokebush on the left) to green to dirty yellow. Painted with a limited palette of Hansa Yellow, Hooker’s Green and Alizarin Crimson, with a little blue for the shadows on the petals.
