Peony -The King of Flowers shows off its irresistible charm

The love of peonies is deeply rooted in the Chinese culture.  Peony, called “Mudan” in Chinese, has been cultivated for several thousand years.  It is called ‘The King of Flower” because peony’s luminous quality is unmatched by its peers.  Every May, I travel to peony gardens to sketch the blooming beauties.   Capturing the subtle shade and tone of the silk-like petals is most challenging.   It is easy to understand why the sumptuous flower symbolizes prosperity and happiness.  I always feel rejuvenated painting peonies.
