Peonies by suburbanbeatnik Peonies by suburbanbeatnik
I painted these flowers for a potential client. I didn't get the job, but I do like the painting. I looked at a few traditional Chinese paintings for inspiration, and used acrylics as watercolor, on Holbein paper.

The overall aspect is very nice, but looking closely I think I'd prefer less white strokes :P

great use of mixed media (is this acrylics and colored pencil, ink?) would make a nice design on stationary or home decor items.

I think I used mostly acrylics, maybe some colored pencil too... I can't remember.

Hmm, maybe I should send this off to Hallmark. Do you know anything about that?

There's lots of talented illustrators out there... they decided to go with someone else, I guess with more flowers under their belt. :P
