Another Iris Portrait

Hi,

I posted another Iris painting here last night and can't find it now

I'm re-posting it again and hope it doesn't show up twice.

W&N water soluble oil paint on an 11 x 14 canvas board. Wanted to paint the Iris before they disappear - hope to paint a yellow one soon. This one reminds me of fog creeping along the ground and the one Iris is just sitting above the fog.

Constructive Critique welcome.

Barbara

Barbara, more clarity inside the Iris! The details help the Iris to show off. . .as they really want to do!!

Re: Another Iris Portrait

Katherine - thank you for pointing that out to me. I did make the inside more prominent and tweaked a few other areas as well. I'm afraid I didn't quite get the lighting right so the color looks a bit different. Tried to adjust it, etc. - anyway here is the fix.

Barbara

Re: Another Iris Portrait

Love that nice rich purple. This is going to be great. I also like the b/g, soft violets that enhance the iris.
