Iris #24

This one has crazy folds, that I had a tough time bringing about with a knife. Tough holding your temptation to just grab that brush and set things right. With this whole series and all the knife work, I am really enjoying the drift from realism. I soon plan to try something completely different from realism, an abstract piece maybe. I am just working on some ideas. The knife and colors bring in a semi abstract feel to these flowers as well and I really like it. Great fun!
