Original painting portraying a purple peony. It was created using ink and pigments on rice paper and took over 11 hours to finish.
It's one of the series of paintings of peonies of different colours. The series is Siyuan’s take on botanical painting - which requires detail and scientific accuracy - but painted in Chinese gongbi style, with an added layer of artistic creativity, freedom and aesthetics.
Each piece in the series portrays a peony with a different personality. The Purple Peony is active, full of vitality, celebrating life. She’s bursting with energy as if she was a dancer wanting to express her joy and dazzle the audience.
If you like the painting but would prefer to purchase a fine art print - you can find it here.
I created The Peony Girl because I want to share the beautiful things in life with you. It's not just a painting to decorate your room, but also for you to wear it and live in it. Check out the possibilities of customising your Peony Girl Lifestyle!
