Shades of Pink Peonies 29

Mona Pendleton | Sunday, January 24, 2016 @ 8:51 PM | , , , ,

Hi! I hope everyone had an amazing weekend! The weather was beautiful here so I hiked my favorite trail: Telegraph Pass on South Mountain taking in all the natural desert beauty. I have an art journal page to share that I finished this morning that was inspired by strokes and techniques I learned from Nancy Medina's video "Pinkalicious Peonies". I put together this vase and flower arrangement for my own personal inspiration in my studio:
Here's my interpretation:

I'm really enjoying all I'm learning in my art journey from a variety of artists whose talent I appreciate and admire. I took the plunge and committed to a floral painting workshop that will be held at an art school in the upcoming months!

I'm entering this page in the following challenges:

First word "AMAZING"; second word "INSPIRING" and third is "MOTIVATING"! Thanks for sharing your beautiful painting Mona. I've been wanting to start painting again for so long but never able yet. Let's see if I can paint on a very tiny scale drawing paper in the next ten months, hehe. Thank you for playing along at Scrap Africa ....come join us again in the current sketch challenge.
