30 PAINTINGS IN 30 DAYS - # 29 - WHITE DAISY ACEO

WHITE DAISY ACEO

2.5" x 3.5" Pastel on Daler-Rowney Pre-cut ACEO Card




Continuing my pastel discovery week, I decided to try some of the coloured pastel card in the pack. For this daisy I chose the pretty blue again. It was awkward because the plain white and grey I chose was a bit too generic for my taste. I didn't have a nice creamy yellow in either pastel set, so I enhanced with yellows and oranges in the center, a Manet like dark green in the shadows and some violet in the sky. 

Although this was painted in the landscape format, I think it looks good if not better upright. This is probably the one I struggled most with and the one I like best now it's done (can't say I had much love for it while it was in process).

SHIPPING 16th MARCH 2016 OR LATER - SOME PAINTINGS AVAILABLE FOR IMMEDIATE DISPATCH FROM MY OUTLETS AS NOTED IN DESCRIPTION ON DAILY PAINTWORKS
