Three's a Charm

"3 Daffs" oil on wood • 6" x 6"

The Challenge: work something loose and easy feeling yellow on yellow. So difficult to figure out how to mix oil paint to create those dark yellow shaded petals. Are they green or are they burnt orange? I tried it all and felt this compromise works the best. The leaves and vase ground it all. 

The daffodils are from my little garden in front of my studio. I love these flowers - they are easy to plant and grow, multiply year to year, the deer avoid them, and they are so early to bloom right after the snow melts! Perfection!
