Pretty Pink Daisies

This week my choice of flower is "Daisy". Pretty Pink Daisies - fabulous flowers... I love painting on this subject. Why? 
The reason being its simplicity and innocence that it portrays. Also they are exquisite, visually appealing and always attract my undivided attention. They are my favorite. They are just so pretty!

These delicate flowers seem to be overflowing with happiness. Often, they are regarded as a symbol of purity especially the white ones. The cut Gerbera daisies make stunning bouquets and indoor flower arrangements. I have a deep personal liking for these stylish and sophisticated flowers. I bet their mere presence will brighten any occasion with their brilliant hues.

A simple fact about them which I also didn't know till now that they are named after a German botanist Traugott Gerber.

In this floral watercolor painting, I have painted pink daisies. The stem is generally upright and support the flower. Its center has a brown core. These are perfect summer floral plants, found in a wide variety of shades of white, pink, yellow, orange, red and purple. The daisy flowers are phototrophic which means that they always turn towards the source of light like sunflowers and belong to the sunflower family.

Here's the artwork in progress:

Oh! And did I tell you that how much I enjoyed painting these florets, with my favorite music put on and how the brush strokes were just going with the flow. In the end, I was quite pleased with the finished painting...

Have a nice weekend!
