An Attempt !

I don't know why I find iris' so difficult to paint. Such a beautiful flower and colors.  This is one that was growing in the gardens of the Chihuly Glass Museum.  I made an attempt at it just yesterday.
 
Since not painting much this past month while away, I'm finding myself going a bit backward.. but that has happened to me every time ... I wonder if  that happens to others ? 
.. Somehow it's like not riding a bicycle, you get back on and find it takes a bit of steadiness to feel comfortable again.. Ok .so, I still have time

  1. I find Iris to be difficult, too. it's hard to get the depth or something. I think you did a fine job after being away for a month.

  2. Yes, practise makes perfect! I still warm up before I begin a welding project.

  3. I agree Barbra - with painting you either use it, or lose it! But I don't think you have lost it at all - your flower is gorgeous!
    I always feel a little rusty if I don't paint for a while :0)

  4. BJ - I know what you mean about getting out of practice. Your iris though looks lovely and I certainly don't think you have lost your touch my friend. Hope you have a great day.

  8. Beautiful, Barbra Joan. If this is going backwards, can I travel with you? I find I always feel like I can't paint when I've been off for a while. It's difficult to get started again. Good job!
