Daffodils in the Garden

Daffodils are peaking right now. Different varieties peak at different times. For this painting, I put down a pink background using red paint and a permanent white watercolor ground. While it was still wet, I used a wet brush and created the flower shapes by removing the pink to get back to the white paper. After that was dry I gave the flowers a little more detail. This was a new technique for me. The flowers are bringing me joy during this time of Covid separation.
