Yellow and white daisies and forget-me-nots

I have been struggling with daisies for the longest time. You'd think they are a simple flower, and so easy to paint, but they aren't. At least, I am never happy with the way they turn out: always looking stiff and wired and as if they're made of plastic :(

Well, today I tried them again, on an old Nescafe bottle - after watching Rose Stallcup paint them like it was the easiest thing in the world!

I think this is the first time I'm happy with my daisies :)

The daisies are sitting on a bed of green fern - but they don't come out in the pix :(

leaving the sides clear
