peony study i || 8x8-inch original painting
hile loose peonies are a favorite of the watercolor world, they are not a favorite of mine. I always want to embrace the fussy nature of the bloom and over complicate a simple sketch. I used this series to give it another go and fell in love.
What I learned:
- putting down a VERY light base coat makes a huge difference!
- watercolor really is about working from light to dark.
- shadows and depth.
- pull different colors in to get the desired outcome
- embrace the fussy petals
