peony demo

Did was the demo painting I did at my last workshop in Manchester. It was painted from a photograph and stressed negative shapes (leaves in foreground), bright, clean color and a unique perspective.

I'm in love with this. Just fantastic. I will have to give this concept a try when I get time. I also really like your portrait from "Different Strokes".
