Just finished this. I would appreciate a honest critique.


Just for giggles I want to show you my Iris from last April. I definitely have improved.

What an amazing difference! :surprise:

The new one is beautiful, the only thing I see is it seems a little "flat", maybe a touch of shadow??

The colors are great and you have greatly improved on backgrounds.

Well done.

Thanks Susan. I had put many shadows in but I think I wiped a lot of it out with the tinting and highlighting.

Since the photo was taken I faded out the bottom of the plant. It was looking like the leaves came from a main stem which is not how it works.

I love to paint flowers and I thank you for the compliment. Coming from you means a lot to me. I aspire to be able to do them as well as you do. Maybe some day.
