Finish the Iris with lovely glazes of purple and pink creating a beautiful iridescent hue of purples and pinks.
I painted this painting today, took me about 7 hours including a lunch break. I will be teaching this and a Magnolia Floral all on a 60 minute DVD for The Artist Network TV. Simple and fun approach to painting a beautiful floral, dark-medium, and last but not least light values!!!
Hopefully you will give this a try.
Paint in the Medium Values leaving the white of the paper for lighter values.
Paint in all your dark values first, shadows and all!!
