I have just returned from a three break away touring country Victoria and the start of spring has really been a bit of a lingering winter. We saw snow on the mountain peaks but also enjoyed the hints of spring. The area we visited is perfect for magnificent Camellia and Magnolia and I took so many images. The first blooms to greet us however were thousands of daffodils everywhere.

As this is only my second day back in my studio and I'm still finding my rhythm I was also happy to  experiment with some new colours that had arrived from the USA whilst I was away.

The new colours are from Da Vinci - Paul Jackson Signature colours. I am liking how vibrant they are. I also used a new Green Gold purchase from Daniel Smith. This is so different to the Winsor and Newton Green Gold and again I love its vibrancy.

Great colours for Daffodils
