Mellow Yellow


Soft, silken Primrose, fading timelessly
John Milton

She is Primrose of the Fae, born in the Spring, creature of the soft woodland dwelling in among the mossy roots. We haven't captured her playful spirit here, having disturbed her sleep (so she's a bit cross).

Summer of Colour finds us in yellow this week.

I painted Primrose over a collage that looked like this....

  2. The green and golden yellow work really well together, sweet (though a bit grumpy!) fairy.
