And Lots of Ways To Paint A Peony
We raise peonies,
lots of peonies!
We have two 50 foot rows of peonies.
One row is several shades of pink
and one row is white.
And I love to pick them for the house.
Love, love, love them!
Another flower that is difficult to paint,
but there are lots of ways to accomplish it.
I'm just showing you one way here today.
Here's a short explanation of where I'm headed today.
Here's a very short time lapse video of the background.
This short video explains
what happened in the time lapse video.
This video shows step by step how I painted the peonies.
I have a free class on my website for painting daisies,
so I added some after I finished the peonies
and I added another peony going off the page.
Click HERE to go to my website.
Scroll all the way to the bottom and there will be three boxes for my course, a single subject class,
and my free daisy painting class.
Click on that box and then add your email address
and confirm it when you receive a confirmation email address in your inbox.
The whole class will be available to you after that.
The next day I painted this peony and daisy painting.
It's funny how when you paint something over and over,
you can begin to loosen up
and things just seem to emerge and happen.
You really start to see things differently.
Well, now you have no excuse for not painting peonies.
You have some photo reference,
you have video and explanations of how I did the background
and you have step by step instructions for how to paint the peonies, and you have a free class available to you to learn to paint the daisies.
Once you learn pieces you can put them together in so many ways to complete new paintings.
But it's in the doing and the re-doing,
and the learning and doing again,
that you'll really see progress.
You can't just try it once and say,
"Oh, I'm no good, I can't do it".
So go get out your paints and give it a go.
Have a great day
and thanks for stopping by.
