Here come the Daffodils

I’ve been painting one snowy watercolor scene after another. Three have been studies of Tony Couch, the Master Watercoloist. It’s good practice to learn from the masters- study their work carefully and then interpret. Like life, it’s great to appreciate the model and wisdom of those who go before us. So after I “finished” this painting, I propped it up and have lived with it for this last week….something else was needed. It wasn’t done! Finally I got it!
Daffodils! Yes, that welcome, hardy bulb that can take the tough snowy winter, the promise of spring. So look carefully- the hint of things to come is embedded …waiting its moment to shine.
