Daffodils, softly coming to life in watercolour
It is obvious that I am loving Spring this year. My happiness flows into my work as one floral after another comes to life on my easel. I have seen daffodils in bloom since I was a child. There has never been a year where their vibrant yellow has not cheered my soul. Their trumpet formations seem to herald a new beginning each year, welcoming in a season full of hope and joy.
Maybe I am being far too romantic! In my recent paintings I am trying to gain that feeling of cheerfulness and a fabulous freedom of spirit. The new collection on my easel are painted from the daffodils in my cottage garden. I have one gorgeous row in paticular, with all the heads facing in the same direction. They look similar to a line of dancers especially when the breeze moves their pretty heads in time.
I hope to share more paintings very soon. For now, please consider painting what you seeseasonally as often as possible. But take time to " really see" natures' beauty.
Don't race past things that deserve a few minutes by stopping to enjoy them !
