I'm so proud of myself. I usually have to practice my flowers before I paint them. So, without any pre-planning I just put my paint on this beautifully sculped piece of unsealed, raw pine--it needed something. :lol:

It does capture a somewhat 'free' feel, somewhat loose. Beautifully done! :)

Thank you, Maureen.

After I painted "Abandoned Ranch" (posted in Acrylics), I put my mind on the wood plaque and just KNEW the iris was perfect. :clap:

After all the wonderful comments, I was right.

Thank you all.

Very good, it's fun to paint this way isn't it. And it's funny how they usually turn out the best.

Thank you, Deb. To tell you the truth, it was a little scary. However, I do love the way it turned out.

I like it! Feels spontaneous!

Linda, could be enhanced a little by adding some variation of greens on the leaves, but still very pretty painting. Also, you may already have more variation that the camera did not record. I have that problem with my camera.

Very pretty indeed, and welcome to WC Linda!

Thank you, Poly, Jeanette and Celeste.

As far as the variation in the leaves, there are three colors in those leaves. lol I maybe could have used a little more yellow.

As to the spontaneity of it, it was spontaneous from the fact that I just started painting it. I had it in mind for a little while. But I'm glad it came across that way. I really had fun with it.

Thank you for the welcome, Celeste.
