Peonies oil painting final

Peonies on Gold

Well, I did try some new things for this painting, but they didn’t entirely pan out like I expected. Flowers are just challenging for me. I have’t yet decided whether I’ll keep this one, or paint over it with something new.

Meanwhile, I love these golds and neutral colors, and am thinking about painting marigolds next. They are gold and yellow and sunny, aren’t they?

  1. Pretty, but not my favorite of your work! I can see how challenging it would be to capture all those subtle shades.

      Yep, it felt pretty impossible (although worth a shot!). And flowers are so hard. I think I love mountain landscapes best. I need to do a barn sometime soon 🙂
