I have a stack of photographs to use as reference for watercolor paintings, including some tree peonies. I am itching to get started, but other chores get in the way, and I want a few days at least to work on only watercolor. One of the chores is to clean off my painting table. It has become a charcoal drawing table, and the resulting dust would not be a positive addition to my watercolor painting.
I am posting these images that I painted last year. They have a wonderful bulbous look to them. Sort of a cross between a peony and a tulip.
