Description of Peonies En Plein Air
This is the first time I’ve ever painted a still life subject outdoors. Inspired by the gorgeous peonies we grew in our garden this season, I decided to paint these en plein air to avoid cutting them. Living in quarantine and spending so much time indoors made me desperate to spend time painting outdoors in the safety of my own garden! The light moved quickly, as did the peonies, but I enjoyed the challenge and hope to have captured a bit of its elegant beauty.
