I wish to thank photographer Komi Takeuchi for the beautiful photo that inspired this painting. I used not just regular watercolors but also inktense watercolor pencils for this. The peony is generally the symbol of love, honor, happiness, wealth, romance and beauty. Peonies are often given on special occasions and often in Wedding flowers!
Pink Peony measures 8×10. Created with Watercolour on Watercolor paper. Matted
