                           ART NOTES

When Sally posted the bouquet of daffodils  her hubby gave last year, 
 the nuances of the yellow spoke to me so much
that I asked for her permission to paint them
It only made sense to follow the direction 
of the flowers in the vase.
I was struck of the simplicity of a subject at home,
 with at the same time a very complex design.
Since my approach with pastel is more representational, it takes more time. 
From the background you see that I paint several layers on top of each other
using the cross hatch technique
Looking closer, you can find more colors than just green and yellow!
Even grays and browns are in here!
This was a lot of fun:)
What I like best about this rendition is that
 this bouquet unequivocally says "Spring!"
