iris canvas wip

Step 1

I have begun a relatively big painting of the heart of an iris on canvas ( 55*46 cm, 22*18 inches ).
I first draw the main lines with charcoal then used red and ochres to do the underpainting. The aim is to make the colour vibrate with its complementary when I do the mainly violet overpainting.

Le processus va être un peu long, je le sens... les dégradés à l'acrylique...même avec du retardateur...
