The auction uses proxy bidding, which means you can set a Maximum Bid, and until that's reached, you're protected from being outbid. So if Bidder A places a Maximum Bid of $200 and Bidder B comes along to try and outbid A, A will be protected till B outbids A over $200.

PLEASE NOTE: As the auction comes to a close, you’ll need to refresh the page to see the latest bids. It may look as if you’ve won when the countdown finishes, but you’ll only see the most recent bids if you refresh the page, so there may have been more bids that you’re not seeing!
The painting will be carefully wrapped and protected with a sheet of conservators glassine and bubble-wrap, in a secure cardboard envelope.

My last chance at daffodils!
For the last few painting sessions I’ve been doing studies of daffodils.
They’re fascinating to paint because of the high chroma and also the narrow value range from light to shadow. To do them well means a lot of careful control.
This week, I noticed that the daffs in the garden were starting to die, so I had this last chance to do a finished painting of them before spring moves on and they’re out of season.
Yes, I’m sure I’ll be able to get them from florists for a while yet, but I’ve decided to try to paint as much as possible what’s growing around me in the Cotswolds this year. So my subjects will likely become a bit more seasonal!
I streamed most of the process of this painting live of facebook over two days, here are the two videos, in which I try to explain the decisions I’m making as I go along and how I’m using the paint to try to sculpt the petals:
In this first video I’ve drawn out the daffs and laid in the background, I get the first flower mostly done before I have to stop to pick the kids up from school!
In this second video I finish the painting. I’d already finished the flower I started the day before and painted the highest one too, so I’m really making final decisions about the overall value balance and composition and painting the final flower at the bottom.
I stream live pretty often on Facebook, although I rarely schedule them. If you want to catch them as they happen, please feel free to follow me on Facebook.
That’s all for this week, hope you had a great week at the easel!
Next week I’m in Belfast giving a five day colour workshop so there won’t be a blog post.
