Spring is coming!

This is a daffodil from last spring, but it won't be long before they flower again - green shoots are appearing all over the garden, even on plants which I was sure were dead after the hard winter we had (the coldest in 30 years!)

Daffodil Macro, 5" x 5"
watercolour on Fabriano Artistico extra white CP

The first in a short series of small format floral macros, painted after I discovered a sheet of paper with a fault. I tore the paper into smaller pieces so I wouldn't waste all of it, and I'm quite enjoying this size and format! Next is a macro view of a bearded iris, then maybe another daffodil!

Brilliant! is the word that springs to mind; I am in awe too of anyone who can handle yellow, as you can! The light in this is nearly blinding, and intoxicating!

Really perfect. Just enough of everything, glorious.

The acres and acres of daffodils are being picked here on Vancouver Island... I love your daffodil...beautifully done.
