Painting with yellow in watercolour has a reputation for being tricky.
When you try to create shadows on your yellow subject it can be easy to misjudge your hues and end up with green shadows.
And that’s not what we want for something like a daffodil.
So in this little video I wanted to share with you my tips for mixing your shadow colours when working with yellow.
Why not buy yourself a bunch of daffs and experiment this weekend?
I also have a more in-depth version of this tip video as an article in Artists and Illustrators magazine so you might like to check that out too:
And if you’re a member of my online school then the full step-by-step tutorial of this daffodil (in real-time, including the trumpet and stem), is available there.
Please let me know in the comments below if you’ve struggled with yellow before.
And if you do have a go at some daffs or anything else, I’d love it if you shared them via social media using #AnnaMasonArt so that I can see them!
