Peonies are my favorite rose. Favorite flower. I love how heavy they look and how full of tight tender sometimes curly petals. I’d really love to paint them right. This cheap board was just to practice. These ended up looking like roses but not so much the elegant peony.
This was in today speak a fail; I include it to hopefully record my improvement.
Getting closer with this one. Peonies are sometimes really closed up. I think I want some silk ones. Or maybe a peony rose bush for the spring.
