White Peonies

"White Peonies"
9x12 acrylic on canvas board
Available through DPW gallery/auction

These white peonies are anything but white! I wanted to add shading, shadows, highlights  to these white flowers - but also add a touch of color to them as well. I love the outcome! There is also a certain amount of texture, as the paints are a little thick in spots. I think it adds interest.

This was an older painting of mine that I reworked in some areas. And all is against a rich, dark background to help make these flowers pop off the canvas!

The flowers do indeed pop off the canvas. Gorgeous!

I love all of the colors you used to describe white. This is really beautiful.
