Heavy, nodding heads of tree peonies

Large flowering peony

“One gorgeous late-spring morning, the garden offering up masses of peonies as if in a curtain call . . .”

      Thank you! I wasn’t sure it was successful with just the watercolors, so I added the ink lines at the end. I think I managed to salvage the piece with that addition.

    I would love to use your watercolor & ink sketch for my twitter background design. May I have your permission to do so?
