I use the Cayeux irises catalogues for invaluable reference (www.iris-cayeux.com) for which I have permission.
So here is yesterday’s work…
There’s a way to go on this one of the apricot coloured irises. I painted some of this at a demo I did for Keyworth art club last week. The jury is still out on the composition. I have made the right hand iris very blurred using wet in wet washes in an attempt to stop it competing with the left hand dominant flower.
Today I will work on the biggest foreground flower to make it stand out and see where that will take us.
