Ok, I have really been getting into this one (and my boys have been so good this weekend to let me paint, they have been working right along side me in the studio this weekend on their own projects!). I started this Saturday morning and just now took a break to breath... the peonie is HARD!! So many eeny tiny folds and intricacies... lordy! I wanted a challenge and I GOT one! It will certainly not be photo realistic by any means, but I am hoping it will at least LOOK like my pink peonie... I am excited to get to the table so I can see how the reds interact with the pinks. Here is the WIP so far:

This is what I use my iPad for.

As it stands now. I am going blind with this flower. I need a margarita break. Bad.

Hopefully I will have more to share with you tomorrow. I will get more done after dinner I am sure as I am really into this piece. The size is 11 x 14". I am almost wishing I went bigger with it, but too late now. C & C's welcome!

Here is the WIP #4. Got some of the red of the hand painted table in. The table that the jar with the Peonie is very painterly. Trying to convey that as a watercolor is interesting as it is very uneven. A challenge.

Usually we ask members to post the completed painting in a WIP Jennifer for completion then repost in the Gallery.
