Original Oil Painting Pom Pom Pansy

Pom Pom Peony


10" x 10"
Painted on gessobord.

Painting with lots of fractured color can be a challenging but I can't seem to ignore what I see. Yes I do exaggerate color a bit to express the feeling I get looking at the flower. The first thing I noticed was the bright yellow green in the peony. It seem to show up everywhere I looked. The white petals in the center seem so reflective of the environment that surrounds them, I love how they frame the golden, furry ball in the center. The gold center seems to glow through the petals, how captivating.

 When I saw this photo that is what caught my attention and that is what I tried to express in my painting.
 The photo was from Gladys Ning.
