Yellow Daisy ACEO in acrylics

This flower  goes by quite a few different common names eg Black Eyed Susan, poorland daisy, brown betty, yellow daisy.  I went with Yellow Daisy.  It is  native to  Eastern and Central North America and is also used as a traditional Native American Medicinal Herb.

I used a more textured watercolour paper for this one as I wanted a bit of texture in the background. Really pleased with how it turned out.

Yellow Daisy measures 3.5 x 2.5 inches and is painted on Daler - Rowney 'The Langton' NOT 300gsm watercolour paper.

Many thanks to Sue Farris for the reference photo.
