"Peony & Bud"    

This Painting is in Private Collection

Description

This painting was such a pleasure. I finally got to paint my peony that I had photographed earlier last summer. It took me about a week to do this painting, because I was careful to get the shadows and the petals correct. I took the Ann Pember watercolor workshop last summer at the Kentucky Watercolor Gallery in Mellwood. She is a master at painting flowers. It was a wonderful opportunity for me to study her painting skills.
