"A Field Of Daisies" by Carol Thompson

"You know summer is in full swing when you pass a 'field of daisies'.  It makes you want to kick off your shoes and stroll through the blooms like a kid again."

Artist comment:  "Like many of you, I have a lifelong love of daisies.  They are dainty, yet enduring (Just try to weed them out of your yard once they have established themselves!).  And have you ever plucked the petals saying to yourself,  "He (she) loves me, he (she) loves me not"?  This medium sized watercolor on Arches 140# hot-pressed watercolor paper, is a favorite of mine.  First, it was easy to paint.  Second, it shows the daisies as I love them, almost all of them fully opened and nodding in the bright summer sunshine.  The composition is like the flowers themselves, wild and wonderful with no "perfect" design.  However, to make a good painting, I paid attention to the darkest darks and lightest lights.  I painted the deep blue background in a diagonal across from the center to the right hand side, the warm brown as a triangle in the lower left quadrant, and the pink-purple-light-blue combination on the upper right.  These color elements bring the painting together."
