A Daffodil, 5x7"
This daffodil from the garden posed such a challenge, as do all flowers for me. The colors are so subtle; the shift from warm to cool can be surprising. I may try to tweak this if I can figure out what it needs. I may have violated the value families! eek. It could be that the petals in the shadow should really be darker. What do you think? Yellows sometimes confound me. How about you?
