Oil on panel, 6"x8"
I have a commission piece of Peonies to paint for a collector so I thought I would do a few studies before I paint a larger piece. This being the first, will be the smallest and I will work larger each time. I have painted them before but it has been a while and I need to familiarize myself with them again. I think it would be cost prohibitive to attempt to locate real Peonies if it is even possible at this time of year but I found some silk ones at a nearby craft store and set them near my easel to paint directly from "fake" life.
