I was inspired by the vibrant colors of the Blue Iris. It reminded me of the colorful costumes during the Trinidad Carnival. I chose to paint the Blue Iris to showcase my love of detail and color theory. My process for this piece was completed in three steps. First I did a detailed tracing by hand from my reference onto an illustration board. The second step was painting the entire board with layers of burnt sienna according to the variation of light, medium and dark. Then I repainted, in layers, over the burnt sienna with the colors from my reference.
