Paeony




5"X7" Oil on board

Paeonies (aka peonies) are a popular subject at this time of year, most of my favourite daily painters have offered us an example recently, much more skillfully than mine. However, I couldn't resist this one because I am very proud of it (the flower, not the painting) I moved this plant last year and I was afraid it wouldn't flower again as paeonies are notoriously hard to move. If you don't get the depth right, they sulk and refuse to flower.


Here are some links to some other daily painter's paeonies:
