Welcome to our world of art.
I love peonies although they are difficult to paint as they change so rapidly - I made sure to photograph these while they were still in bud as within an hour or so of being in our rather warm kitchen the blooms had fully opened up. With this painting I wanted to achieve a more painterly style, so I used a Designers Guild blue throw with a swirly grey design to cover the table. I really like the effect and the richness of the colours in the painting.
