White Peony Watercolor Painting – Work in Progress WIP

This is the latest watercolor painting I am working on, it  is a White Peony 16×20″ on 200lb CP  paper. I have started working on the background, I will add a couple more layers before moving to the petals of the peony. These peonies grows in my neighbors garden and they are so beautiful, I can sometimes be found early in the morning in my pjs sneaking through their yard taking pictures, with permission of course (for the pictures not the pj’s lol ) Sometimes the light is just perfect and I know if I take the time to get dressed I will miss it. Thank goodness nobody else is up this early on my street 🙂

  1. It's looking good. We had peonies in a previous garden, they bloomed heavily but not for long. A painting is such a lovely way to preserve their memory!

  2. This is going to be a real beauty and very impressive at that size.
    I laughed when I read about your early morning visits to your neighbor's yard: we artist are all the same…I did the same thing quite a few times last summer:-) I will try to grow some peonies this summer to safeguard my pride:-)
