Painting #25 Daisy Bee

I have painted this daisy before but the background was blue and there was no bee.  This time i wanted to try a different background, add the bee and have a line of light with a disappearing petal.
The background color was yellow ochre and yellow using wet-in-wet and while it didn't pop the daisy I like the softer look.  It isn't quite what I had in mind but it works.
Putting a bee on a flower head is always fun.

Here I am one-quarter of the way to 100 and I have really stepped out of my comfort zone, tried new things and have really taken the time to really 'look' at what I am doing.  I am doing more thumbnails also and find that very helpful.

Beautiful warm colors! I like the monochromatic palette you used and the bee looks like he might fly right off the page! Super job!

Teri......this is so beautiful. Warm and sunny, I also love the little bee. Hi legs are so cute, and his coloring and wings too. I guess he's the bee's knees! ....and you're already 1/4 of the way through. I think you're on pace for 200 paintings!

Love the warmth you've captured here, Teri. I can feel the morning sun warm up this nice daisy for the bee to rest upon whilst gathering his honey!
