Daffodils in a Coffee Pot. oil on linen panel, 12 x 8 inches.
This painting was the last one I managed to fit in before daffodil season finished here in the Cotswolds. Just when I was warming up to them.
They were fast becoming a favourite subject, but the countryside around here will yield more subjects as the year progresses. The roses will be here soon!
I painted this over four sessions, three of which were streamed live. You can see replays of each of hte steams below, as well a shorter, 7 minute, condensed version that still gives a good idea of the stages of making the painting.
I hope you enjoy them! If you have any questions about how this painting was made, please post a comment and I’ll help if I can.
the final stage was dne well after the original set up was gone and the daffodils had died. I don’t often paint from photographs, but I had enough of the painting done to know where I was going with it, and just wanted to resolve some of the forms of the flowers more.
Here’s the short version:
