Large peony Painting

A large peony painting step 1

This painting is 18x24 inches. When framed it is a formidable size. To paint large takes a bit more planning. Mixing enough pigment so that the brush never gets thirsty and meanwhile the paper soaks up all moisture like a sponge.
     One tip is to always mix up more paint then you think you will need. When painting a wash it is impossible to get the formula to match if you don't mix enough to cover an area the first time.
