MY COMMENTS:
Im back from the flower shop and did this.
The first floral I did from life, the size is exaggerated. The light was directly from upper behind, but Im afraid I failed to show it that way.


MY QUESTIONS FOR THE GROUP:
Anything...

:wave: I like your iris and the colours but the background seems a little 'muddy' to me. I would pick up some the iris colours and a little more green - perhaps even a little yellow just to give it more 'life'. Chammi.

What you may need is a variance in value. Overall, the design works but to make it pop, a bit of drama is necessary. Some darker shades in the purples and greens and some lighter shades where your light is hitting. The background is nice, I like it but your flower presently looks very flat and is too much the same value (above) as the b-g.

Thanks for posting this!
