Yellow Iris Portrait

My yellow Iris are blooming so I was able to cut a stalk and bring it inside to paint. This is on 11 x 14 canvas board - Did the background first and let it dry then did the painting. Used Winsor & Newton water soluble oil paints.

I see I didn't quite crop the photo as well as I should have - the colors aren't quite true to the painting and I had to try to adjust them in Photoshop 7.

Constructive Critiques welcome.

Barbara

Re: Yellow Iris Portrait

Colors are never true online as in person. But the colors you choose, looks like ochre/sienna and cad yellow look very nice together. Looking good
