Though the peony is a complicated subject to paint my issue with this flower was the color. I don't know what my problem is but I find pink a very difficult color to paint. Pretty much on the same scale of difficulty as yellow. Both pink and yellow are a real challenge for me. I keep thinking if I just keep trying to use these colors one day they will make sense to me. I would love to hear from anyone that has conquered these colors.
This painting will be available for sale at the Laguna Festival Of Art this summer.
