Watercolor daffodils - student project

Hello, everyone! 

I was inspired by the spring that is about to come! In the area where I live there isn't much sunshine during wintertime and by February we already miss the sun, its mirthful rays and warm days. That's why i decided to create something bright and sunny! :)

I didn't really understand the logic there, and, besides, I am not very good at color names in English (I will try to eliminate this lack of knowledge, though). I just tried different colors of different flowers and mixed!
