Friday, May 25, 2007 - Iris and Peony WIPs

Worked a bit more on the Iris - and started putting paint on the Peony. Both on Arches hotpress 140# paper and 1/4 sheet size. Will take my time and continue to work on both of these over the weekend.

Your iris is coming along very well! I especially like the way you did the orange throat thingy, I was disappointed that mine didn't turn out as well as I had intended with the orange throat since that was what drew my attention in the photo in the first place.

I am also working on the same peony photo as you! I have gotten to the same place, also. Isn't Marsha just the best photographer? I have a question about the peony...are you going to darken the darkest dark shadow areas on this? If so, what color are you going to use? So far I, like you, have used just a darker mix of the pink but I think I need to go in with some areas of blue or purple. Since I have a blue sky I think I will try a light mix of the blue and see what that does for me. I'll post it on my blog as a WIP.

Good work, we must be on the same wavelength lately with these paintings!
