Y is for Yellow

I saw a gorgeous photo of a yellow Gerbera daisy at this link: http://betulaworldpress.com/2014/12/26/floralfriday-yellow-gerberas/ and it inspired me to give it a try.  (If you’re looking for floral inspiration, Beth has a plethora of images to wow you, plus lots more besides.  Definitely worth a look.)

I originally intended to do a detailed watercolor study, but a weekend afternoon nap was shouting my name, so I decided instead to fade the flower into the background and go for more of an impressionistic feel.

If I’d have had more time, I’d have punched up the yellow a bit to give more of a contrast against the blue, but still I like this one, and may revisit it again one day when time allows.

I promise the letter Z won’t be a yawn this go-round.  I hope you’ll tune in tomorrow and see.  We might just start the Friday dance early this week!
