This is my second attempt of the Lemon Shasta daisies at home. It is a little bit bolder which I like. I'm still working on finding the right paint thickness and using limited strokes. What a great challenge!
I had the great pleasure of attending a workshop with Gina Brown in Decatur, Alabama this past week. This was one of the practice paintings. She did a fabulous job of encouraging us to be much looser with our paints and use a limited palette to achieve a unified effect. I can't wait to paint more! I'm not sure if I will work on this one some more or just save as a practice.
Yes, artists have their favorites too. One learns to post and show the good, the better, and the not so good, because you never know what someone else might see in your painting. This one has a lot of 'fluff' and golden light. And I'm always a fan of some lavender in the spring.

Spring is not officially here, but there are certain signs of it for sure! I have been wanting to paint a series of bird nests for a while now. I have artist friends who have mastered this beautifully who inspire me. There are more to come and they are available at https://www.dailypaintworks.com/artists/elaine-ford-5747/artwork
