Project

Blue Iris

I did use a photo from PMP . The photo was tweaked with Photoshop what made the special effects. Paper is 9 x 12 ". Background was colored, blend with mineral spirits, again colored in shades, blended with white etc, trying to get the same look as the photo. After that is did fill in the lines and details with dark colors and black.

Q&A with Margreet v TK

Cynthia Knox asked:
Margreet, this is fabulous! You have done another exceptional piece that delights the eye with your choices of color and blending techniques. The petal veins are realistic, and the colors against that luscious background really lend drama to the subject. Your background is nicely swirled and the color transitions are smooth. So beautiful!
Margreet v TK answered:
Thanks for your inspiration!

Hi Kaleidimo, I did start with CP. Restart the course from Cynthia but also do courses on ArtTutor. Try to keep myself again busy with art, lots of fun and to learn. Hope you are doing well!
