Yupo peony 4

Can you say BLUE PAINTER’S TAPE! This photo will brighten up your computer screen!
I applied the painter’s tape to the entire flower, then added some darks around the edges.
After taking this photo, I decided the background could be even darker, so I added 2 more layers of paint, using sap green and dioxigin purple in addition to the aforementioned 4 colors to get a nice dark.

I didn’t really have to cover the entire flower with tape, since I was only going to put more paint along the edges, but, since this was an experiment to see if the tape would lift the paint, I just went ahead and did it anyway!

Looking forward to seeing the painting without the painter's tape - it's always like a moment of truth when that tape/masking comes off:-)

OMG, I have no idea how this will look when all that tape comes off - but that sure is BLUE! ha ha

A blue peony would be nice as well, methinks!
