This watercolour was a joy to paint.  Spring flowers are so inspiring to try and capture in watercolour. Primroses have such a distinct petal shape and a pale outer petal colour which always seem to make them appear that they are bathed in strong sunlight.

I know that primroses are a favourite for many and whilst a few years ago it was hard to find them in the wild, I believe they are are now protected and numbers have increased.  They can now be seen along roadside verges and on countryside walks.
