My daughter’s daffodils–completed during our Memorial Day family watercolor fest. I love everything about this painting: the sunny yellow, the vibrant orange offset with it’s complementary color blue, the blue shading in the leaves, and the textures on the centers of the flowers. Her skills continue to improve with each successive painting. Watercolors on cold pressed Acquarello Artistico paper by Fabriano.
Since she liked the Poppies my daughter painted a few weeks ago, I chose this scaled-down version of the same painting from Fiona Peart’s “Vibrant Flowers in Watercolor” tutorial for my sister. She really rocked it.
My niece, Karen, chose a Tulip tutorial from Michael Lakin’s book, “Botanical Flowers in Watercolor.” My mother chose to paint an Agapanthus from the same book.
My daughter painted these Daffodils using a tutorial from the book, “Watercolor Flowers” by Wendy Tait as a guide. The addition of blue on the white petals really made this painting come alive.
And I’m working on this lesson featuring Tulips, Posies, and Hellebores from the book, “Tulips in Watercolor” by Fiona Peart. I’ll be posting photos of the completed paintings next.
