Iris Update 5

The first photo shows yesterday's progress from the previous session shown in the second photo.  Still much more to do and refine, lights to be lifted with a few more darks to be placed.  I like the light, airy look in some areas of the 2nd photo.

Edited this post after reading all the great comments.  I truly had a chuckle over my memory mess up.  Of course I knew they were iris but must have had lilacs on the brain.  Thanks all of you - hope you had a good chuckle too.

Those dark greens are adding so much depth. It's more beautiful with each session!

Wonderful progress. This is way cool watching over your shoulder. You are giving me permission to try watercolor again. Always a mystery how you all do that. Wm

PS By the way, not that it really matters in the greater sense, are you sure these are liliacs and not lilacs (which grow off a tall bush)? Your flowers look more like Irises (as in VanGogh's Irises).

Ann this is coming along nicely. I can't wait to see it finished. What colors are you using for your greens.

Ann, love the iris (maybe the flu got to your brain! - but whatever they are, great job). Lots of negative painting which is so hard - fantastic job.

Thanks all of you. Brain fog, eh *giggle*.
