The last time you saw the iris mixed media painting it looked like this:
I was really unhappy with it and just put it away for a while. But I decided to just cover it with gesso and start over.
Then I repainted it. There is still lots of texture.
You can see more of the texture in this shot.
And here’s a little closer view of the iris. I used acrylic paints and oil pastels. I may add a few more details but it is close to being finished and I am much happier with it.
