Here's the daffs painting. I'm calling it Hopes of Spring. It will always be redolent of the sadness caused by the events in Paris. But hope springs eternal and Spring flowers are a nice emblem of this.

Hopes of Spring

It was a very interesting exercise in tones and how one tone effects another in a painting as you go along.
I think the putting in the shadow first worked ok.  I will perhaps upload a series of WIPs over the next few days for those who are interested in the progression.

Hope you like the painting as much as I enjoyed making it.

I now have an assignation with a certain half sheet Irises drawing waiting with a challenging look about it.  

Can't wait to get started!
