Hi friends! Back in 2005 I painted this peony:
I had it down in my studio last year up on my easel because I needed to repair the frame it was in and several people spied it in the background and wanted a tutorial. I generally bristle at the thought of painting something more than once, especially something this large but I did enjoy it the first time around so I filed the idea away. Then I came across this reference photo on Unsplash and I thought the similarity was so striking to the vantage point of my painting and the idea would be fun to revisit!
Feel free to paint this whatever size you like, the techniques are the same whatever you choose. If you want to ask me questions during the live stream be sure to tune in at 12:30pm Eastern Time on YouTube otherwise you can catch the replay later.
