a peony: photographed and drawn

i wish i had a green thumb, i really wish i did. usually i have a really hard time spending money on plants because they almost always end up dead. last year, i jumped back in again and planted a peony in the back yard. and guess what??? it grew this year and has produced the most amazing plumy pink flowers!!!

i haven't drawn anything since my botanical class a few months ago and i must say that this was a tough one. there are so many petals, but i am fairly happy with the outcome, especially the leaves.


  1. You are so, so talented! I love the picture. Heather

  2. that is one super drawing!As to a green thumb - all it takes is one or two successes! You're on your way.


thank you so much for taking the time to leave a comment. i love reading each and every one and am thrilled you decided to visit linwood avenue!
