Yellow Sunlit Garden by Katherine Martinez
Original Watercolor on Watercolor Paper
Flowers always spring up moments of joy in our day with their vibrant and delicate petals reaching for some sun. Hence why they always been a source of inspiration for us painters. I love creating this impression of the Itoh Bartzella Peony whose origin begins with Japanese Horticulturist, Dr. Toichi Itoh in 1948 as one of the first 7 peony hybrids. It originally sold for $500-$1,000 due to the fact that before Tiochi’s breakthrough it was deemed genetically impossible to breed herbaceous peonies with tree peonies.
