Pretty N Pink
Framed 30 x 40
Transparent Watercolor & Acrylic
The extravagance of the Peony inspired this large portrayal of their soft petals. I began with watercolor to capture the blooms. The painting was then mounted on a board with additional paper added for texture. Acrylic paint was then used for strong contrast to surround the blooms of “Pretty N Pink”.
Thawing in the Glow
