Iris Grouping Revised - SOLD

Iris Grouping revised Detail below
My collectors constantly impress me with their eye for composition and color. You may not realize it, but you are probably a lot more clever about these things than you realize, or can articulate. The collector who requested this painting was generally pleased with it, but had a few suggestions she asked me to implement. Although I had to use gouache to do a couple of revisions, thus making it no longer a transparent watercolor, it does work better now. (The camera can tell the difference better than the human eye, between opaque and transparent, so it actually looks beter than this in real life.) I changed the pink petals to dark yellow, and added some filler petals to the unfolding bud at the center. Yes, that's better!

Pink Tulips - SOLD

Pink Tulips Oil on Stretched Canvas, 8" x 8" SOLD at $45.00 plus shipping. I've been drooling over the pink tulips done by an amazing painter in the DP lineup. Oriana Kacicek does the most detailed and beautiful work. So on Friday evening I stopped by one of the street vendors in DC, who told me he'd been waiting for me all day. What a sweetie. Bought some pink tulips, and tried to paint them. Much more difficult than I imagined, they are so delicate. At any rate, here's my attempt.
