Alpine Daisies

This painting didn’t go exactly as planned but then there is nothing new about that.  Part of watercolour painting is taking what you get and working with it.   I wanted the daisies to show up in contrast with the dark mountains and be sort of lost in the sunshine across the meadow.  Well, the dark daisies against the mountains looked too high which reads “humungous”  in a painting and the daisies across the meadow disappear a little too much for my liking.  I cut about two inches off the bottom to make the perspective look better which coincidentally made the painting fit the frame I had so that worked out OK.  There still should be more contrast between the daisies and the sun washed meadow.  But there are parts like the texture on the mountains and the formations in the rock that I really like.
