prima fiore

My first try at daffodils this spring. I have a few different kinds ... Right now very delicate, small two-bloomed white daffodils are in bloom. Most of the big yellow ones are done.
I think I paint daffodils better when I don't draw them first; having the drawing makes me want to be "accurate"; not drawing may free me from that, as in the forsythias.

A few sprigs of forsythia, always fun to do.
BTW: I don't want you to think I'm being so productive ... The paintings I have been and will be posting this week were all done over the course of the previous two weeks or so. I'll be running out in a few days!
 A cup I bought at a thrift shop thinking it'd be good in still lifes. Haven't painted it yet!

You do daffodils and lilies so well and these are wonderful reminders of the first blooms of spring. So glad you are back painting - doesn't look like you lost your chops at all while away!
