I am back to painting some and even though I feel out of the zone it feels good to be painting at all. I am hoping I will remember the colors I was using and get this one going a little faster so that I can move on to the next one. Some of you might remember that I was drawing 4-5 full sheets for painting this winter so I am hoping to get at them...however a new one has come up that I can hardly wait to paint too so we will see what is next. So here is the peony as it stands tonight. I need to start blocking in the background and spend alot more time on all the stamens to make them stand out. Got a long way to go but it is good to be moving forward!
