Iris With Laughing Eyes

Look familiar? It's another chorus of the same song. I wanted to try the iris from last week again but more abstracted. I started off with a very dark under painting rather than the usual red tint that I customarily use. Instead of painting wet into wet, this time I let the under painting dry completely, and then went back in with all of the other colors which popped against the dark background. This approach kept my colors cleaner without picking up any of the background color. I left some of the dark to peek through. I can imagine this as a stain glass window. I really like the way it worked out. 

Early bird catches the worm! I have decided not to use the auction style to sell my paintings for right now, so if you'd like to purchase, simply click on the link to pay with a credit card.

Thanks for viewing my purple model in her new get up!
