A new LARGE piece for me!


Good Morning! At least it is while I write this. We are having some very large trees trimmed around the house today so wish me luck that I still have a house left when they are done!

I finished this large (for me) painting on 24x18" canvas. Gallery wrapped with deep sides painted for a professional look. I took a photo of one of my iris's a long time ago and came across it recently. I used it as a reference for this piece.

I am having trouble getting the colors right though inthe photo. The iris is more purple than blue-purple and the green is also less blue. Any suggestins would be welcome. I have a digital camera and they tend to 'blue' colors.

I will be adding it to my Etsy shop soon so check it out. http://artbylmr.etsy.com

What a beautiful piece! It looks so real, I had to do a double-take. Thought it was a photo.

Great job!

Aloha!

P.s. How did you like working with that size?
