More irises

I did this iris study a while back from the photo I took in the garden last year. I like the way the tones and shadows are depicted on the flowers but when we do a similar study at the workshop, we will improve the composition and have the two flowers slightly overlapping so that the eye is not pulled back and forth to each separate flower.

I saw how misled we can be by using a reference photo too literally.

This is an unusual format that suits the upright iris form.
