Peony in Gouache

A few weeks ago my friend Barbara brought some of her beautiful peony blooms to me.  So of course I had to try to create a lasting image of it.  I used gouache paint in a semi-transparent application.  I'm working toward using it more opaquely, but so far I tend to water it down a bit.  The goal was to show the delicacy of the petal texture and the soft slight pinks and yellows in the shadows.
