Tree Peonies


I went straight into another watercolour of the tree peonies. Here it is. I was interested in the one that was back lit at the top. Love that contrast and translucency with the light shining through the petals and casting shadows within the flower.I feel I am getting nearer to the softness with contrast thing that these flowers require. Not easy to get the definition and keep them soft. It’s a case of… well, perhaps the photo did the job better! But such a great learning exercise about edges, soft shadows, and so on. I will take what I’ve learned on to future projects.
