Peonies from Wisley Garden

Regular price £670.00

This painting is a continuation of Siyuan’s experiments with mixed media - as the fourth in the series. The earlier paintings are: Melody of Tranquility (sold - see in the gallery), Sunset Rest (available here), and Outside the Vase (sold - see in the gallery).  

The purpose was to create an effect of a painting within a painting. In the background, two golden peonies (tree peonies) on the velvety red are the two wall paintings hung closely together. They were created using Chinese Gongbi technique with ink, pigments, and chalk paint and then sealed with wax. 

In the foreground, another layer was created in oil paint to achieve the effect of three-dimensional, full blossoms. Those peonies are herbaceous and intersectional peonies and they represent the wonderful memories of the meeting with Billy (Binny Plants) at the Peony Trial at Wisley Garden in 2018. Billy subsequently invited Siyuan to exhibit her fine art at his stand at RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2019, where she was honoured to meet Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II.

Given that this year both RHS Chelsea Flower Show and RHS Wisley Garden Flower Show have had to be cancelled due to Covid-19, Siyuan decided to create this painting of peonies to mark these significant summer events that are sadly missing from the British Summer Social Season.
