Iris Macro



I just finished this iris painting, I used a photo shared by an online group friend who took the macro photo from one of her irises. The photo was stunning, my painting of it just doesn't do it justice. This was a fun painting to do, despite the struggles. I love painting using wet-in-wet techniques. Irises are among my favorites from the flower world, they are just complicated to try to paint. I think I struggle more with roses and irises than any other flowers.

Susan, I love the curves on this and the softened edges that blur into just a tinge of color - I think it's a good painting!
