Daffodils in Afternoon Sunlight - Oil on 8"x6" Linen Panel

This was initially going to be a daffodil painting under overcast lighting conditions.  Then the sun came out and I couldn't resist trying to capture its dramatic effect on the set-up.  Unfortunately, the clouds would not stay away, so it took a few short painting sessions on different afternoons to achieve the effect I was after.
