Single Daffodil Gold and Green

Another daffodil, and a very limited palette.  Because the colors are analogous,  the painting is very harmonious.  The background is a gradation from medium to dark.  Dark value pushes the pale flower forward while medium value enables lost edges, and keeps the flower from feeling like it's cut out and pasted down on top of the painting
