Iris Bunch 6x6 oil
It's always tricky for me to decide whether to post the finish step on a demo first or last, but in this case, as you see, it's first. So, the first step is the wash of warm red and then drawing loose shapes, in burnt umber onto that. I chose the warm red to contrast with what I knew would be an overall cool color palette.By the way, this is #66 Clausens linen glued down to panel. In the second step, I began to put down some basic shadow shapes in both the flowers and background. The 3rd step is putting in some of the more pure and higher chroma colors into middle areas. Then, I joined areas of light, middle and dark values areas, as I didn't want things to get too scattered. My final step shows more time spent with sharpening a few edges and blending others to lead the eye and keep the interest on that top left bloom.
