Well, this is my second try in posting today. Hopefully, this one will work. :)
Today's peony was painted on a mauve-toned canvas, and it has a completely different feel from the one yesterday. The first was painted on a brightly toned pink canvas, and I much prefer its sunny quality. Brush size was the only other variable. The palette was the same. It is interesting to see how a simple underpainting can have such an impact.
Its a beautiful day, and I'm looking forward to spending it in my garden. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! :)
