Still Life with Peonies in a Glass Jar
I cut four peonies from the garden and set them in a large glass jar. It was rather a complicated subject and quite challenging over the week I was painting. The flowers changed position naturally as they moved towards the light, the petals opened wider and even slightly changed their colour. The stalks also seemed to alter their position in the jar. It was a race against time to complete the painting before the petals started to drop.
From an oil painting.
