Created for this year's RHS Chelsea Flower Show, this magnificent oil painting shows a peony field outside a window.
The two-piece painting started from an idea of a field covered with blossoming peonies - beautiful and soft, inviting for a barefoot walk. The original inspiration for delicate pink peonies was Lovely Rose peony - chosen in February for our "Peony of the Month" project.
Over time, the painting gradually evolved. First, a window frame was added, alongside a vase with fresh herbaceous peonies to create an effect as if someone was living next to a peony field. Then, branch shadows were added to create a dreamy, romantic feeling.
With this painting, one can feel as if they lived next to a stunning peony field which stays full of sweet fragrance and colourful flowers turning towards the sun-filled, cloudless blue sky, regardless of the weather or time of the year!
