Daffodil Study

Daffodils in Cobalt Vase/ watercolor/ 5.25" x 5.5"/SOLD

The challenge for this painting was the blue-black background. This is cobalt blue mixed with ivory black applied in a wet flat wash onto dry paper.
I painted the daffodil shadows as I lost the light in my studio. When I paint with less light, I usually find that I see a darker value (hence the quin gold in the shadows). I will retry this study in the light. I believe that the shadows will probably end up a lighter value... interesting to see.
