Thinking Spring this Morning

Looking at these daffodils this morning was energizing/challenging - all the shapes and shades of greens and yellows!  Not worrying or trying to paint individual petals, instead asking, "What is the overall shape that I see?"  Looking at the negative spaces, especially inside the glass bottle, and thinking only about shapes, keeping variety in the background by mixing fresh color for each area. Demo from todays' class Painting Fundamentals at Beach Studios. I am so fortunate to have a wonderful group of students, so willing to go to a new place, and isn't that what we love about painting anyway?
