View Full Version : Iris on Black - WIP

I did this one today. The purple is not as dark as shows in the pic so when I am finished will take better pic with daylight. I need to tone down the red with a few glazes and do some more highlighting. The yellow is also much brighter than it appears here. Can you see anything else that will make this better?

I like it on black. It really makes the iris jump out. I would try to add some detail to the white part of the iris, though it may just be the photo that makes it look washed out. Most auto cameras go crazy when trying to capture an image of such high contrast.

I agree, this is lovely. I like the red as is it looks now too. Good job!

Oh this is wonderfully rich looking. What size if it? I am very fond of the blossoms on a very dark background. Looking forward to seeing more.

Thanks everyone for the comments, I really value the input I get here. Gayle, it is 16 X 20. The web cam does not reflect the true color and detail. I am almost satisfied with this one just a couple more things and will call it done. I love irises and am now thinking of doing a couple of small ones for my upcoming show.
