7x10 Peony. Watercolor.

The finished piece. I felt the painting was a little stiff, so I added some penciled drawings of pens in the cigar box and on the table to freshen it up a bit.

This is such a great series of stages to see. It is almost as good as being in a workshop with you. Thank you for this and hope to see more.

Thank you for sharing the process. Very educational!

I got your book for Mother's Day, and I love it! I never get tired of looking at the illustrations.
