Pretty in Pink

"Pretty in Pink"

6" x 6" oil on panel

Early last week I was able to join my artist friend Val B at her cabin on Lake Superior for a mini-charrette. The scenery around there is beautiful, but rather than be sacrificial bodies for the mosquitoes and flies, we opted to paint indoors. Roaming their property, I found one last peony still blooming. For this painting I used a limited palette of water-soluble oil colors in cad yellow light, alizarin crimson, ultramarine blue, permanent green deep and titanium white.

I LOVE this Nancy! The brushstrokes and colors in the peony is gorgeous. And peonies are one of my favorite flowers, I can't believe you still found one blooming!
