LIVE 12:30pm ET Close-Up Watercolor Peony

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!

  2. Gosh, I might actually try this, but maybe in the Spring…..I’m gonna mark it for later. I have a tutorial request. I have been seeing all sorts of ornaments and so forth of a red pick up truck with a tree in the back. I would love to learn how to approach that to paint it. I would paint it BIG for my Christmas living room! And spatter lots of snow! Lol!!
