Finding my way with Irises

Here’s my drawing of the irises composition from my photograph. It seems to me that it’s a nice expression just as it is.

I love the lines, but I love the colour too…how can I find a way of combining the two?

I’ve got 99 likes/thumbs up on my face book page…..Who’s gonna make it 100? Yay!

If you do, I’ll let you have a look at this picture of irises in my garden taken last May. I like the horizontal format and I’m working on it. I’ve done a detailed drawing and traced the drawing to preserve it. Might start a painting tomorrow.
