The photo was supplied by my Painting Friend, Lil,  Thankyou Lil for such a lovely photo.  I really enjoyed painting this one.  Daffodils are one of my favorite flowers and I believe it shows.  This is done on Arches 140 CP size 8"by 6". Colors used were Transparent Red Oxide,Aur. Yellow, Cad Yel Light, Quin Orange, Sap Green,Ult Bl,Perm Green Light and Dark,Mineral Violet, Indanthroe Blue and Pthalo Blue.  I hope you enjoy this sunny painting and once again thanks for looking.  I also love reading the comments too.

  1. Hi Nora, so happy you stopped by my blog and left such a kind remark. Let me just say this, your work is outstanding. Don't think you will have a problems with palette knife painting. It's great fun. All the best.

  2. Nora,
    This is like a breath of springtime! Beautiful! You achieved great shadings and highlights. I find yellow so difficult to work with, but your results are super.

  11. I often get emotionally involved. Like when I read your post, I can cry, laugh, sad, funny, depending on your written words. I think you are a sensitive person.
