Marsha's Peony


From a photo reference from Marsha on WcW; I've been wanting to try this Peony for quite some time; not entirely happy with the outcome, but stuck in a quest to conquor sunlight vs shadow.

Portrait study




I wanted to practice the sun spots on skin (and haven't sufficiently learned to paint skin yet) lol. This is for study only; I used a cover of an old Victoria Magazine for inspiration. No intention to display or sell. I hope to practice this technique until I learn it.

About Me

My photo
As a child I began designing my own clothes while in 5th grade. Grandma let me use fabric from her stash and showed me how to use the treadle machine. My love for art and the creative began at that point, always having a current project of some kind. Painting has provided a unique creative outlet for me that I am thankful for, an exciting journey where there's always something new to learn.
