An Iris in Oil - Giving It A Try

Oil on canvas board 9x12
Many, many years ago before I really got started in watercolor I painted some with oils - mainly in a more decorative painting style but I did enjoy the soft, buttery feel of them. I recently pulled them out again and decided to give them a try. I love painting irises in watercolor but sometime long to be able to paint lights on top of darks so I really enjoyed the process - not sure I am ready to switch full time to oils but it is always good to streatch our creative wings!
