New Daffodils

Impatiently waiting for our spring flowers to bloom, I went to a photo from the Philadelphia flower show for reference.  After days of experimenting with yellows and nothing working...aaugh!...switched gears and picked these nice orangey and white ones.
Been hopping around with various projects and exhibit prep but enjoyed taking my time on this painting.  It was on the easel all week with a dabble here and a dabble there.  White flowers demand you take time and let layers dry fully to see what subtle nuances are taking place.  Waiting is not usually my strong point!
