Three Daisies

 A week ago, I created acrylic backgrounds on several stretched canvases.   This one is 9x12.  I was feeling a little down this morning.  I love daisies they are such happy, cheerful flowers.  I felt lighter once I got started and am happy with how it turned out.

Finished work

Filling in flowers with acrylic paint which I mixed myself

Added highlights to glass container

Vignette created by rubbing Derwent Intense Block on edge of canvas then smudging with wet fingers

You do things with acrylic I can't do with watercolor in terms of doing bg first and overpainting. I really love this and I hope it cheered you as well.
