I haven't started mine yet, but after looking at all the beautiful pics on the forum, I have to get busy and try to come close.  It looks like everyone spent so much time on them, but they couldn't have.  Fantastic. :yippee:

Everyone, your peonies are great.  I haven't had a chance to try my hand at it yet.  It looks like a challenge.  Wish me luck.

Chrisanne, it dosen't seem as though we received the replay yet. I guess Dennis will let you know. Funny, because I already finished mine and posted it. I probably followed the pdf, dont remember.

Thanks Gloria,

I just wondered because Brian said he watched and re-watched the first part of the replay before doing the background.

Yeah...has anyone received the rerun yet?  I've been waiting for it all week. I did one flower from the pdf, but my daughter wanted it for her birthday, so I've started another.
Guess we'll have to wait til we hear from Dennis.
Your Peony's are all beautiful....really great jobs....we've sure come a long ways in these short months. I certainly didn't think I had it in me!   :)

Hi all my watercolor  :painting: friends.

The replay for lesson 15, how to paint peonies is now on the TV list.

I haven't yet received an email announcing it, but I've kept checking.
