Looking forward to my Tree Peony buds opening. This is the first year of blooming since I planted them a couple years back. One tree has quite a few. Considering their first year of blooming they produce only one, I feel blessed.
Here's a few sketches of the buds. I think I'm going to create a list to read prior to beginning a sketch or painting of things to keep in mind. #1 leave some whites for sparkle. I usually try but seemed to have forgotten in the case of the second image. Oh well. Paint and learn.
