Peonies

My second attempt at watercolor. It got muddy. I overworked the petals, I know. There's also what look like one big petal in the middle on the biggest flower. It's supposed to be 2, but they ran together. We (my mum, sis and I) each did this one, starting and stopping over a few weeks. I think there would be a better flow if I just sat down and painted in one sitting, drying with a hairdryer as necessary. It lacks a little spontaneity, imho. The overall shape is a little wonky , but I think if I added more filler, I would lose the focus on the center flowers.
