Pretty Peonies


I've decided that it's finished - mostly because I'm afraid that if I touch it any more, something terrible will happen.  I'm not exactly thrilled with the way the leaves came out, but when I look over at it from where I'm typing, it's not that bad.  So this painting is alright for a attempt to get back into the swing of painting more frequently.

Was thinking about this painting in the middle of the night, and had to come back to see it again. You are right - the flowers work very well, and there is something wrong with the leaves. I thought it was the leaves, but I compared it with my photos, and they are the right sort of colour. I think it is a "better luck next time" sort of thing.

Thanks Judy - I appreciate the honesty! You know, it's the first time I've picked up a watercolour brush in ages - so I'm glad that the flowers turned out ok. Always a good learning experience!
