Daffodils started as a preliminary sketch on the left tall flower in marker. Too bright and covered it in pastel, which looked promising. Continued in pastel using water here and there and finally filled in background. Scrap paper Canson white about 4x6" Nupastels base followed by Rembrandts because they were handy. Deeper blue and more yellows, less red IRL (in real life). We forget not everyone knows what letters mean.

2.5x3.5" watercolors which were on my palette, including Dan Smith's newest triad of Quin gold, Veridian and Ultramarine Red, which is really purple. Didn't look too good for a long, long while, but I like it now. All flowers this weekend. C&C welcome.

Good job on both of these. The daffs look great with the blue b/g and I love the colours in your rhodo. I am always impressed with such small paintings.

I like both Paula - the light is good on the daffs - but think the rhodos are my favourite :)
