African Iris - CC welcome

Done for an art class. I never would have tried botanicals without the class, but I really enjoyed doing this. Winsor & Newton watercolour, from blank page to finshed took about 5 hours . Pointers are always welcomed, especially since I am new to this botanical style.

Lovely details on all. I have never tried a botanical, but yours is nicely done!

This is really a nice start for a first botanical rendering. There is something it needs, and I am not sure what is missing. Maybe a leaf or two to tie it together? Or I may be totally wrong. I do some botanical studies, but in ink.

Thanks for commenting.

Gigalot your comment made me smile - I am literally looking over flower beds full of them - they grow really well here so they are everywhere!

I also thought something was missing from the composition - perhaps I will have to try another one and play around a bit

Wow, you did great for first time botanical. I like the simplicity, it makes you look at the flower parts with no distractions.
