View From Above 8" x 10 oil on linen
No, we are not seeing daisies here yet, but I've been inspired by several photos and paintings of spring flowers lately. They reminded me of this shot I took last summer looking down onto a mass of wild flowers. I let the shadow cast from the group steal the show with curving shapes and striking color. Of course the difficult part about painting daisy type flowers is not to paint them as perfectly white and symmetrical as they first appear. Here, I bunched them up and used shadows to link shapes.
