  • Starting Peony painting with the bud is the best way to familiarize yourself with the patterns and approach, later on in the tutorial channel we will tackle an open Peony. I love the buds, the variation in pattern and colour is addictive and achieving the round appearance is a challenge and fun when it goes well. I do hope you enjoy this 'back to botanical' project.
