Peonies are some of my favourite flowers, but they are also incredibly intimidating to paint and draw since they are overflowing with petals. Nonetheless, I had so much fun painting this astonishing bloom. I decided to add cats because I thought the symbols associated with both creatures were compatible. Peonies bring prosperity and compassions. Cats symbolize balance, good timing and patience. Everything that is needed for a good life!
I used watercolours on watercolour paper.
