White Peony – Watercolour – 7″x11″ – Sold

This is a recent watercolour I did which I painted from a beautiful reference photo from Artist Derik Hawley (www.derikhawley.com) and I was thrilled that it was one of the paintings that we sold during our recent collaborative art show at CJ’s Cafe in Bronte in July.

The painting was a fun experiment for me as I had always wanted to do a black background in a painting by using a combination of Alizarin Crimson and Viridian Green.  I had often admired paintings done in this style and was excited to find a reference that lent itself well to the technique.

Although my colours are normally wild and bright, this was a fun art detour to take and one I will definitely try again in the future!
