Love Blooms – Pink Peony Watercolor

Love Blooms – Pink Peony (Framed 18 x 24) Watercolor by Yvonne Pecor Mucci (sold)

Across the street from my father’s home is a well-tended patch of peonies.  They were lit up by the sunlight which I thought would make a lovely watercolor painting.

I like the way artist Soon Warren mixes her pigments to achieve an intense dark background without using black.  The peonies were the perfect subject.  I mixed Hooker’s Green, Burnt Sienna and Prussian Blue, leaning towards the green and blue to achieve this color.  It took me a couple applications to get it right.

    • Thanks. Yes, I agree that the dark background makes it come alive. That’s what I liked in Warren’s watercolors.
