Peoney Garden

I have been working on writing a new book, this one, on painting the landscape.  The process had me up in the studio, looking through paintings to use as examples in the book.  As you might expect, I am coming across paintings that I thought were finished at the time, but having a fresh look at them, I realize, just a touch up here or there would make a better painting.  This is one of those. On the day that I painted this, the fence behind the flowers was a much darker value.  When I took a fresh look at the painting, I decided to grey it down a little and lighten it so that it wasn't fighting for attention with the flowers.   It is on auction right now in my ebay store.  To visit my store and this painting, click here
