Morning Daffodils, Oil 5" x 8"

Morning Daffodils, 5″ x 8″ oil painting on gessoed board.

Palette: Cadmium Yellow pale, Cadmium Yellow Medium, Alizarin Crimson, French Ultramarine Blue, Viridian, Permalba White

I don’t think I could mix a good color for cool, blue/green leaves of the daffodils without viridian added to the limited palette.  Viridian also helps to keep the darks from being too purple.
