About This Class

Peonies come in lots of colours, white, red and shades of pink, sometimes even with striped petals, really beautiful, big bold flowers. A shrinking violet it is not.

So why not have a go at painting this, and use a complimentary dark colour for the background to set it off.

Three stages, naturally stopping fro drying time.

I have attached the photo and the tracing AND, the reason the tracing has some pink on it is because I used a pink watercolour pencil to do the tracing down. Clever eh.
