Peony Portrait - Yellow

Regular price $1,154.00
/

An original painting portraying a yellow peony. It was painted using ink and pigments on rice paper and took over 11 hours to finish. 

It's one of the series of portraits of peonies of different colours. The series is Siyuan’s take on botanical painting - which requires scientific detail and accuracy - but painted in Chinese gongbi style, with an added layer of aesthetics, artistic creativity and freedom. 

Each piece in the series portrays a peony with a different personality. The Yellow Peony is calm, strong and modest - quietly expressing herself and unassuming. Her elegance, grace and beauty of her petals can clearly be seen by others so there is no need to boast about it.

Size (including the frame): 62 cm x 85 cm x 5 cm.
