Patrick Saunders Fine Arts - "Iris" Floral Painting

Reflecting back on some older plein air florals for #ThrowBackThursday, I came across this iris painted at the Overland Park Arboretum & Botanical Gardens in 2014.

I can distinctly remember not understanding the structure of the flower at all, which worked to my advantage. With such a confusing subject, it's easier to just paint shapes, values and colors. - Patrick Saunders
