woyww -peonies in a bowl

Peonies in a china bowl is finished.  An exercise in patience and perseverance with a touch of "I'm sick of petals".  But, ultimately worth all the time and effort. All credit to Anna Mason for her wonderful tutorials.  DH continues to challenge me to paint a flower without following a tutorial.  My comeback is that I have learnt so much from being guided by an expert and for now that is OK.  

 Perhaps the next painting will be more freestyle.  Thinking of a fish as my thought process can be random.  But for now I am happy to sit back, learn and have a peek at what is happening on other creative desks.

Have a lovely woyw...

  13. Hello, I am back. I am so impressed with your painting and I can well believe you are sick of petals, but it is so worth the finished product. You will move on and do your own thing when you are good and ready, don't let anyone push you. #31

  16. Utterly gorgeous, and well worth the time, effort and patience you put in to it. I don't blame you wanting a rest from petals, there must be hundreds in those two flowers. You've painted them exquisitely.
    Hope you have a lovely week,

  20. Oh Sandra - what a talent you have. I love peonies and this painting is so lifelike and such beautiful shades of pink have been used. Love the china bowl too. Stunning!
    Never stop painting, whether from tutorials or by yourself. Such pleasure you bring to us all.

  22. Happy Belated WOYWW. Your painting is incredible. I thought it was a photo when I first looked! I definitely need to stick to the abstract end of art, as then I can just be messy and get away with it. Ali x #37
