Nearly done withthis. Not entirely happy with the darker reds. I think I went a bit mad with the blue, but it's a nice and vibrant piece so far which is a little different for me.

Iris - WIP 1

Start of a new project - beautiful blue and white irises drizzled in raindrops.
Not really drawn a lot of flowers, especially in CP, but looking forward to this!

It wasn't cheap so I hope it's worth it!!
