Daffodils and Freesias

This charming botanical watercolour was painted from life using freesias and daffodils. The composition was slowly built up by adding more and more blooms, finally the bumble bee and butterflies were added last. The intensity of colour and detail was achieved by adding many glazes of paint.

The original painting was purchased in loving memory of Margaret Smithies and now hangs in Fairfield Hospital, Bury.
