YEP, MORE SHASTA DAISIES – WATERCOLOUR PAINTING

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.

SHASTA DAISES – WATERCOLOUR PAINTING

The plan on this one altered as I progressed and the changes may have had a negative impact on the outcome. I wanted a blue/yellow theme going on, cooling and losing some of the petals as well as the foliage, with the distant flowerheads merging into a yellow/green background.

Halfway though I jumped ship, scraped some of the colour off the background flowers and made them brighter and more pronounced. I also brought more flowerheads into focus – having started with just three and hinting at the rest.

Now is a period of reflection – though I do like having something in my hand to ponder over rather than an image in my head. You may not have seen the last of this one.
