30 Minute Iris #1
These little guys were meant to be 10 minute irises, but the elapsed time was more like half an hour. They're done in gouache from the earlier painting, since the flowers themselves had pretty much curled up. I was trying to get more shades of blue than in the oil version, and I think I did that. I need to practice with more real flowers, because "seeing" the different shades is key, and I need practice in that too.
