This week I have painted a complicated two colour Iris, I loved the twists of the fading flowers and the colour and detail of the falling petals. It is placed in the advanced section due to the time and complexity, but if you love Iris flowers you could give bits of it a try. My very first painting of a flower was a complicated Aquilegia, I loved it enough to try and trying is where the passion begins. The full flower study was completed over 3 days so bear that in mind when you set out to paint the whole project. If you are totally new to painting then practice the colours and draw up the main petal several times across the page and try the purple edge effect. Join us on the forum and share your progress.
Wishing you Sunshine and success!
