Peonies are one of the most beautiful spring flowers and today, I’m showing you how easy it is to paint watercolor peonies in a ginger jar.
Last year when we built our deck, we had to transplant my peonies to a different location and I’ve been patiently waiting for spring to see if they survived the move. Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like they did 🙁 . I tried to follow all the ‘advice’ on how to transplant them and I still haven’t given up on them but I’m kinda bummed out that I won’t have my own peonies this year…:(
Fortunately, peonies are starting to slowly appear at the grocery store, the bad part is that they’re about $5 per stem. I lucked out last week and got some beautiful ones for my mother’s day bouquet. I love how they look with the tulips. and the blue ginger jar.
I wanted to share this video with you which I hope you will enjoy. Peonies are pretty easy to paint if you just let go of expectations and keep your strokes very lose and organic. I’m not sure if that makes sense.
Stay tuned for a free printable of this painting sometime next week…:)
I hope you enjoyed this tutorial please don’t forget to check out the beautiful peony ideas from my friends below.
