A host of golden daffodils. . . .

The daffodils in the garden are really coming into their own; standing proud in the sunshine and welcoming the spring equinox. We just about had a show for St. Davids Day, 1st of March; enough for me to be able to bring some into the house.

The local church yard is awash with yellow as it holds a huge amount of the small wild daffodils.(Narcissus pseudonarcissus)

We have been set the task of drawing a vase of daffodils in virtual art group. So I have been practicing…… getting the correct yellows, particularly on the pale varieties, is very difficult. I think I need lots more practice it’s a long time since I attempted capturing these little beauties on paper. I mostly I have a “double” variety in my garden and they hardly look like a conventional daffodil. They are just a riot of crinkley little petals.

Some I painted a while ago where I am much happier with the yellows

Back to the drawing board as they say ………
