From the garden of my watercolor class, that is…
Can you tell which of these irises (above or below) were drawn from real flowers and which from a photo?
Okay, now I think I’ve figured out how to post on this blog!

Your flowers are so lovely! Superb controll of the medium! I’m going to guess that the top iris was drawn from a photo?
Actually, bottom iris was from a photo. I was surprised to find it was easier for me to see the details in the real 3-D image.
I often paint from photos. The upper image is more illustrative than the lower one, which flows more like a moment in time without the benefit of a complete inspection. I think the slightly tilted angle of the lower image makes for a more interesting image.
