"The King" by Carol Thompson

"'The King' Alfred daffodil is universally popular in spring gardens.  Easy to grow, most welcome after long cold days, and prolific reproducers.  If you haven't yet experienced King Alfred doffodils, you have a treat in store for you."

Artist comment:  "In this small watercolor on Arches 140# hot-pressed watercolor paper,  I designed a very simple "triangle" composition, to emphasize the singular drama of a magnificent King Alfred Daffodil.  The background includes several hues of blue, to "cool" the hot yellow, and to also play up the green and brown of the leaves and stems.  The angle of light is far to the right,  creating deeper shadows on the buds and bloom.  This serves to emphasize the vivid highlight on the ruffled edge of the flower's trumpet."
