"Bearded Iris" Photo Reference

I have always wanted to paint the gorgeous bearded iris, but I couldn't get all the petals in and have it fit and look beautiful. Time to put on your Georia O'Keefe hat on, this is cropped and we get to see the important reproductive parts of this flower. Look at the the fuzzy male parts and the pistol dead center in the photo. There is light and heavy veining which will be a lot of fun.
We are going to simplify the background.

After each class, I load an image of what I painted into Dropbox for your reference, so you can clearly see what I've completed.
When you're done painting your lesson, take a picture and send it to me by Thursday by 8pm so I can load in into Dropbox, and at the next zoom class we can work together with a critique on how to progress. If I don't get your image by 8pm Thursday it may not be posted in dropbox for review.
