|It seems I'm on an iris roll, and this shape was irresistible,|
|... as was this color.|
|I blocked in shadows with on orange/pink mix [both staining colors].|
|Then I started some w/w on the petals with aureolin and orange.|
|I put in a thin orange wash over the background.|
|Then, I painted w/w, with darker, denser pigments, and allowed the paint to flow.|
The background has shown the iris to be a bit washed out, so this is where I will have to go in again with yellow, and probably orange.
