Sometimes beauty is its own reason. These daffodils (any daffodils really) bring me joy. Building these vector flowers was every bit a love affair. As with every project, I get to practice what I know and stretch into areas unknown. For those of you that know Illustrator, the leaves are brushes with the twist built in. The flowers themselves are blends, and radial and linear gradients (no gradient mesh).
Whenever a sign of spring is needed, this little beauty is there to remind me.
