Watercolor Iris

Iris
Watercolor
9 1/2" x 12 3/4"
Fabriano Aristico Paper

I deleted the original photo because it looked so washed out. This photo more accurately represents the painting. The greyscale of the photo allows me to check the values to see where they could be improved.

I loved enlarging this one and looking closely at how you shaped the white part - so beautiful! Do you still have miskit on the purple at the bottom?

I like how you toned down the hint of an iris in the upper left corner Ann, the purple against the white is yummy!

Rhonda, thank you for looking and your comments. There was just a bit of miskit that I forgot to remove, thank you for asking about that. :)

Teresa, thank you! I took out the harsher line in that one petal nearest the lightest light of the main iris.
