Daily Painting Practice - Peony and Shells

Peony and Shells
original by Peter Yesis
oil on canvas board

A very quick arrangement and a quick daily painting. I know what you are thinking...."I thought he said no more peonies". Well, I 'm using artistic license to change what I said. I like how I did the shells the best...loose brushwork. I think I should have loosened up a bit on the glass. A bit too linear for my taste.

Nice peony. It has the same feeling of a Duane Keiser painting.I especially like the loose brushwork on the seashells.

Beautiful - I love the addition of the shells.

Nicely done! What I enjoyed were the shapes within the glass with that spark of light

I got a little ambitious and added some flowers to a portrait I'm working on. Thought they would be a snap; nope - I can now more fully appreciate the great job you have done with these floral pieces.

Beautyful work,I dream paintings like these, but I have no talent to put them ``on paper`` .From Romania,a big hug for a soul like yours-- free.
