Peonies in Monday Morning Drawing Class

"Showy Peonies"
12" x 14" Pastel

Instructor Bob Semans brought in a lovely bouquet of Peonies which we divided out into three bouquets. This was my first time at class in about a month with our travels. I find florals quite a challenge in pastel. Bob emphasizes the impressionistic approach. My pieces are never really finished after a few hours work, but I post them because they are part of my art journey, and I find the work very satisfying.

Mary, I think this is the second time I've seen one of your pastel pieces and for the second time, I think it is just top notch. So pretty, so exquisite! Beautiful work!

I can almost smell them. You have a delicate and delicious touch with pastels--it's like a memory.
