Fading glory (Tree Peony) – Sue Hinton

10 x 10 inches, acrylic on canvas board

I’m enjoying catching up on some of the subjects I've photographed over months (and sometimes years) with a view to 'one day' painting them! I love all peonies and have painted several at different times, but I particularly like the way this tree peony holds its seed pods – I think the flowers look almost as good when they’re fading as they do in full bloom.
