I can't believe another month is behind us. Today I'm here to celebrate March's Flower of the month: Daffodils. We have had a mild winter here in upstate New York. I'm hoping we will start to see these beautiful flowers pop up soon!
This digi from Lila Grey is beautiful and simple. When I set out to color this image, I spent quite a bit of time picking out yellows. I wanted something bright but not neon. My favorite yellow combination is Y11, Y13, Y15, Y17. To help soften these bright yellows I also included Y00. For the greens, I selected YG61, YG63, YG67 and G99 to give the stems and leaves and olive look.
I kept the colors simple this month, but I really focused on shading. I really wanted to bring the flower to life. Once the image was dry, I did go add some additional shadows with the G99. I love the texture it added to the leaves.
Thank you for visiting. With any luck we will be seeing daffodils soon!!
Yellow: Y00, Y11, Y13, Y15, Y17
