EDM Challenge #61: Draw a Grouping

                                                 Daffodils.size.jpg

Yesterday was a beautiful day in New York City and everyone was outside enjoying the early spring weather.  Central Park was full- many ball games, bike riders, walkers, runners, sun bathers and just plain folks sitting on the benches.  There were several beds of daffodils at the park entrance on E 86th Street and I stopped to sketch a few while I was walking with my granddaughter in her stroller.  I was delighted to see the EDM challenge for this week because I already had my grouping of 4 different daffodils and just needed to finish painting them today.  Within the next 2 weeks there will be many beds of tulips in bloom as spring definitely arrives in the Northeast.  I'm watching and periodically sketching one specific tulip plant that is growing in a flower bed in front of my building.  I can't wait to see what color it is!  This daffodil painting was going to be one of my series of Color projects since I'm exploring YELLOW this month.  Now there will be one less to add at the end of the month.

VERY VERY BEAUTIFUL!!

Shirley, perfect!! Glad to hear sping has arrived in NYC and to be so cooperative as to give you more yellow to paint! Great job!

Great job! I am inspired by those of you creative enough to work those themes into each project.

Shirley, they are beautiful. Sounds like you had a wonderful day, as well.

Great job with the daffs! Enjoy your month of studying yellow -- it's a tough color to get the shadows on, so well worth the month of practice!
