Process: Peony Pinks

W14 5 22 peony journal_2_2Pink and corals are not my go-to colors, but I use them when painting Missions.  We bought some local peonies that were luscious a few days ago, and they used every pink I had to paint!  I loved how they faded from the vibrant corals to the palest shell pinks in a few days.  I still have petals on mine, one more day!

Below is the amazing flower that had me looking at coral and pink!
This is the same flower several days apart.

I’m a day early: Happy Paint Party Friday Thursday!
And now I will be doing Friday Sketches and Artists Play Room!

    I love love love your peonies, both painted and photos. Thanks for visiting my site, and to answer your question : I use both twinks and flat watercolors. For the apple blossoms I used flat colors at the fence and sky while the blossoms , leaves and branches were done in twinks. Most times I feel a combo is the best, brings the best out of both color types.
