I've taken tons of photos of our camellias blooming, and they're very pretty, so I should work through them all to try to sketch the different varieties. Now, by saying that, of course, you realize that I am procrastinating from having to attempt daffodils again this year!
Daffodils are such cheerful, pretty flowers, but they're yellow...or white and yellow...colors that are very hard in watercolor painting. Yellows come across looking flat. And white...well, there is no white, excepting for the white of the paper itself, and that means lots of delicate shades and negative shapes to imply the image. It's imperative with daffodils that you create that beautiful trumpet shape, so there you have it! I know I will have at them again this year, but every year, I try, and every year, I laugh and realize that I haven't quite gotten there yet.
Have a great Thursday!
(I haven't quite gotten the hang of them either.)
