"Accent" by Carol Thompson

"A creamy yellow daffodil with pink fringes and picotee edges is a startling accent in your Spring garden."

Artist comment:  "The "accent" here is on the unusual pink picotee fringe of this remarkable daffodil.  When this one bloomed in my garden, I was completely enchanted and knew it had to be painted.  I used Arches 140# hot-pressed watercolor paper.  I focused on just one blossom.  The background was kept simple, to allow me to concentrate on the glory of the color and subtle shadings within the flower.  I used a layering technique to intensify the deeper tones, while still holding the translucency of the outer petals.  I enjoy that kind of capability with watercolor, especially for florals."
