Oil, Mara Schasteen 2009
24" x 24"
I painted this after reviewing Katie Swatland's installment of Richard Schmid's Peony demonstration at www.swatlandstudios.com/home.html . The concept, therefore, is not my own, but modeled after Mr. Schmid's peony lesson. I used my own hydrangeas and a warmer color palette. If you haven't signed up for these lessons, I highly recommend doing so today!
