Weekly Sketch – Daffodils Still Life – 05/04/2014

I love yellow flowers, and daffodils fit the bill. They come in fantastic zesty colours, and with their bold trumpets they are the perfect harbingers of Spring. Strangely I don’t like drawing the flowers as they are, when I draw their shape they seem too flouncy, not bold enough. In the below sketch I decided to square up my daffodil blooms to escape ‘flouncy’ and I much prefer them this way in 2d. Funny that!
