I am very excited to start a new pastel painting based on a daffodil I photographed (shown above) recently. This photograph of this daffodil was taken at the Conservatory Garden in Central Park in late April 2009. What I loved about this photograph was how most of the flower was very soft and blurry except for the cup in the center which is almost three-dimensional and a beautiful shade of oranges and yellows.
