8" x 10" - Oil on Canvas
This was one that I started and completed today.
One day, I think last summer, a friend of mine in Washington shared this stunning image and I asked her if she minded if I painted it. She gave me permission and so, here it is. I would still love to paint it in a much larger format, but this was a good study to let me understand what all the petals are doing, etc. It was also a good challenge with regard to the colours. I have not quite captured what is happening in the photograph. The peony on the left, leans just a tiny bit more toward a yellow hue and the blossom on the right, while more blue in tone is a bit more vibrant in hue than mine. Thank you very much Deb Salazar-Herbst for your generosity in allowing me to use your image!!
