It's not much, but I am particularly proud of this painting. I used a paperbag from my lunch the day before. I went with my instincts and just assembled a composition of yellows. The painting is from live observation and the daffodils were already fading so I tried to capture that as well as I could. I derived great enjoyment from painting it and I hope you like it.

i like this Smiley the yellow on the paper bag gives it a really good look ... i really don't know any artistic terms but the colour combos for the daffodils are great ^^

Wow - i really like how that turned out.
I've never thought of playing on a paper bag - love the texture of it with the composition. When daffodils wilt and dry, they have a papery bag feel, sort of.
The lemon looks great too. Fun project. Great job! : )

This is really beautiful...I love that it's on a paper bag, but your composition is beautiful on its own. How will you frame it?
