I know I put one of these out in May, but it has been sitting in my pile of dissatisfaction since. Then the other day I felt I knew what to do, so I had another go. Whether this is the case, time will tell, but at the very least I feel I have advanced the cause.

Other floral paintings are available for sale on my website:


  1. “Pile of Dissatisfaction”?? I like that term better than my “eeh stack” . Love both renderings of the Shasta Daisies. How much did your mood effect your color placement? The earlier one seems more vibrant. The current daisies are more subdued in comparison. Love your work!

    • Thanks. It is a bit hit and miss with the colours as I mix paint loosely on the paper. I did want this one a bit bluer – a warm blue at that – but at the same time I wanted to preserve the yellows that indicated the light coming through leaves and stalks so it ended up less vibrant as you observe. I thought I’d leave it like that for a while. You can go in too strong and ending up wrecking everything.
