Pink Peonies

I struggle with flowers.  I don't know why they baffle me so much, but I just can't seem to figure out a strategy.  I never see shapes and values.  Instead I see every petal, every color change and I forget what I know and paint accordingly.  Usually I wipe the whole thing and go paint some fruit instead.  This time I think I progressed.  I figured something out, or just ignored what I thought I was looking at, and stayed looser.  Whatever happened, I'm hoping it will be only steps forward, and not back into my old habits.
