Painting anything with a preponderance of the color white has always been my bane. How to make what is essentially an empty color, full of color? It’s a challenge. Too much color, and there won’t be enough white left to know what should have been. So I try my hand at it now and then, to see what I can do. I think this daisy has just enough touches of color that it doesn’t lose its daisy-essence. I’m enjoying painting bee wings, too, their translucence ephemeral, allowing a glimpse of the colors beneath. I painted from a reference photo generously shared by Kim Underwood.
