This one is so flat. I did try darkening areas and lifting areas but it just didn’t seem to make much difference. Maybe it’s the colors used? No, I think I’m missing something here in trying to paint irises - you want the curvy shapes and it should look more delicate than this…
Okay, one more try and then I’ll give up for a while and let this subject rest until I can work it out.

This is one of those paintings that looks so much better in the photo than in real life. Although I could play with it more and darken or lift some colors, I think I’ll just move on to something else and try out those purple/violet pigments again on another iris painting.

Finished the first peony painting by just slightly darkening areas here and there - not too much and I may be able to see it more than you see it from the previous version.
Also, painted a second pink peony just because they are so pretty. This one has a much darker background to set it off.
