Yellow Gerberas

Yesterday I bought some yellow gerberas (they are daisy like flowers) and have spent this morning drawing and painting them.  My head is a bit fuzzy (thanks to this yukky head cold) so I have tried to keep things simple.

Pencil drawing A3ish

Watercolour A3ish
This watercolour was a response to having studied the flowers.  I wanted to do something quick and free flowing.  I limited my pallet to cad' yellow, cad' orange, ultramarine and burnt umber.  I added the falling petal to create a moment of movement as the flowers are in various degrees of decay leaning over the edge of the path.
