This portrait took a slightly different turn, I worked on and examined many different peonies before settling on this particular flower head, and then, when I had photographed it I found myself working with the flower's symmetry. When I had satisfied myself with how this big, bold, beautiful flower's shape was working I then experimented with it's colour, usually these big, showy, heavy-headed blooms are displayed in all their vibrant glory but I moved away from the temptation to exaggerate the vibrancy and instead muted the colours and let the form show through.
