don't get over here much lately, thought I'd pop my peony in here.


A year ago I wouldn't have been confident enough to attempt this, but since starting my garden journal http://wetcanvas.com/forums/showthread.php?t=524062
over in watercolour gallery, I really enjoy the challenge...

c & c welcome...

Your peony is beautiful.

Your journaling has really paid off for you because you did a lovely job with this beautiful blossom.

I love how you placed your peony on the diagonal. Such delicate and detailed work! You have captured the peony's personality! Bravo!

This is a beautiful rendering of a peony, and I think they are pretty difficult to do. Very nice work!

It is lovely! I also like the diagonal orientation of the flower and the way you've wrapped the text around it. Plus, you have nice, neat handwriting :).

This inspires me want to start a painting journal...perhaps one of these days when I'm a bit more organized and have cleared out some residual projects. I know I'd love it.

Thanks for sharing!

Sorry I missed this Shelley -

- the flower head is so well organised cos they're incredibly difficult to paint! (I think!!!)

Very nice page for your journal.
