FLORAL WATERCOLOUR – SPRING COMES FLOODING IN

FLORAL WATERCOLOUR - SPRING COMES FLOODING IN

Having just got back from New Zealand and Australia I realise that one person’s spring is another’s autumn. But for me the excitement of spring is almost palpable, watching the garden burst into flower and blossom.
I wanted to try this painting again, having sold a copy, which is on my website grahammcquadefineart.com. I wanted to get the mass of flowers looser and less defined without losing the identity of daffodils. However, it seems my old pedantic self regained the upper hand and although a little looser I couldnt fully shake free.
Maybe the change will be slower than I thought.

    • Thanks for your comments. Yellow can be a tricky colour, particularly when getting shadows. I use just a warm and a cool yellow, but leaving white areas by running the yellow onto wet paper gives other tonal gradations and it looks like the sunlight is hitting the surfaces.
