Work in Progress - Iris drawings
I started work this week on some new flower images. I decided to work in multiples this time because the colors of each Iris are similar.
I'm doing a 5x7 and an 8x8 of a Purple Iris. I've colored in the background using the grating technique I learned in Oregon. I have begun adding layers to the petals. This is done lightly in order to allow many layers of color. This creates depth in the painting.
The Iris on the left is fairly close to being finished. I have set it aside for a few days because I have begun work on a rabbit. I have never done an animal before, so this is a new challenge for me.
Below is the other Iris. This one is also pretty close to finished.
