June 13, "Peony #1"

I've been wondering about how to paint flowers lately, as they are a subject I've never really attempted, though Carol Marine has had several posts lately in which she talks about painting them... and I've found them helpful...
I do like this one, it is odd to paint because I try to really look at the value changes and the larger shapes, and you get kinda sucked into the tones of white and which is darker and which is lighter and how can you tell and all... and then you like it better after you haven't looked at it for a while.
There's a lot of subtle color in the background greys as well, which are hard to see unless you are looking for them!
