IRIS - 1

This was a demo painting for a class. As you can see, I began with the main iris stem crossing another, and then decided I didn’t like it.

I completed the iris, and then redrew the stem going more straight down.

Whaaaat?! you can't throw this at us just like that Deb. Looks terrific, I specially dig that stem with unopened irises on the right, that would do an amazing painting in itself.
Gorgeous Deb! more please
