Sunny Daffodils !

I am still hooked with water-coloring flowers :) It was on my list to color a daffodil since long. I found it difficult to color, being such a bright color that is yellow how does one add highlights to it? And  shadows brown or grey ?

All the images I searched showed the petals to be very light almost translucent .I used distress inks for watercoloring .My first trial turned out very bad,I used grey for shadow and it didn’t look nice. For this card I went with brown. It is still very far from looking real but at least not very bad!

The flowers are small I think I should have stamped some more of them .what do you think ?
Supplies used :
