Painting Peonies

I've been showing you the floral inspirations I've photographed, and now I've finally settled on painting peonies this week.
I started it before these flowers actually bloomed so all I had to work with were the leaves. I knew the color palette I wanted to work with and thanks to the weather lately, by the time I really needed to look at the real flowers, our local florist was able to get some. (My own are not particularly colorful but I do enjoy them in my garden). The pic of the painting in the frame is far from finished but I tried it out in the room it was meant for to see how it will look. I'll post the finished painting hopefully in another week.......
