About This Class


Peonies are a timeless trend, and they will make a beautiful addition to your portfolio, or to your wall art collection.

Also, they are my favorite flowers and creating this class was such a joy for me. I hope you will like it, too.

In this class I will explain step by step how to draw and paint peonies in 3 different styles: 

-in a loose painterly style  

-using fine liner and watercolor

- in traditional realistic looking style. 

Also, we will do an easy warm up to get used to the shapes of the petals and will mix colors for our beautiful illustration.

This class is geared toward all peony and watercolor lovers.

Great class
I love the way Irina broke down different painting styles. It's nice to have options in finding your own style. Using a pencil to break down each petal as a study is such a good idea. Most times I just rush right into getting paint to paper that I don't take the time to really observe my object. I have to remember to slow down! Thank you!
great class!!
