Complementary Iris WIP


Due to my husband's two hospitalizations, I have neglected my artwork for quite awhile. I did paint with my buddies Thursday afternoon, though, and started this painting of an iris. This will be my entry into the project files for the Watercolor Workshop this month. We are to paint something using complementary colors, and this photo was one of the projects for last month that I did not participate in, so I thought I would combine both months and use yellow and purple for my two complementary colors.

The cactus painting I started so long ago is nearing completion, but I felt I needed to start something else and work on that while I consider what else needs to be done. I dislike letting paintings sit for so long because I lose my enthusiasm for the project, but it couldn't be helped this time. I will post it when I get it finished.

Susan,

So glad you are back and hope your husband is doing well. Excited to see your finished Iris, they are one of my most favorite flowers.

Hi Susan, good that you took time out to paint, I am sure that will do you good. Hope your DH soon gets his strength back and can come home for good.
