Thanks Dennis and everyone else for the advice.  I just keep struggling with the backgrounds!!   :tickedoff: :tickedoff:  I will try more water and darken up the background.  Will also add shadows on the stems.

I do hope you'll repost after you darken up the background, Sherri - I love your flowers and they'll really stand out against a deep, dark blue...
Cheers,
Sharon

Hi all,

With spring in the air, the daffodils shooting up in staffordshire, Birthday cards needed, I decided to use the daffodil class. What do you think?

I've done it properly now in A4. Just a note, I have been using watercolour pencils...........faber castell albrecht durer....they are both pretty and a joy to work with.

Lovely daffodils (Hmmm...what's the difference between narcissus and daffodils??).

I'll bet they are prettier than the photos shows them to be.

Oh, Leanne, I just read what I wrote and saw that it could be misinterpreted.

I meant that YOUR painting of the daffodils probably looks better than it came out as a photo.  As I am looking at the photo, it looks kind of whited out.  I'm sure the painting is brighter.
