a field of white daffodils


White daffodils in watercolour

The alpine flowers in the Pyrenees are stunning at the moment and everyday I see something new. But the other day we had a real treat - a field of Pheasant Eye Narcissus. I'd never seen white daffodils before and the were hundreds.

I was very sorry not to have my sketching stuff with me, but it was a showery day and I didn't think I'd want to stop and sketch on our hike, as rain could have happened at any minute. So I took lots of photos and worked these three little paintings from some of them.

This tutorial is a step-by-step of how I painted the larger painting on the left hand page.
