more peonies and primroses
set up in an east facing window
Transparent wash with general shapes and colors
I think I am done painting peonies for the season. This is my 10th painting, and I believe it will be my last till this time next year. For those of you who are artists I thought I would include the process. Although it is an oil painting, it starts out very much like a watercolor. With peonies you have to work fast. You pretty much have one day per painting as by the next day they have started to droop. It sure is nice to stand on my breezy back porch and breath in the scent of all these beautiful flowers and then on top of that, get to paint them! This painting and the others are in my ebay gallery. I will sporadically put them on auction from time to time as I do my other paintings. As always, you are free to make an offer, especially if you desire more than one painting.
