Iris in graphite

Any help you can give me, I welcome any critique.


Hi Jim! I like it a lot. I love the way the petals curl; they are true to form. If I had one suggestion, it would be to make sure that the outline around the petals and leaves should be a little less prominent. But that’s just my opinion. I like your directional lines in both leaves and petals. They translate the form quite well. Thanks so much for sharing.


I think this is great the way it is. I love it.

I like this very much. The curling of the petals is especially appealing. Only slight suggestion would be to have a little more variation in the two leaf segments to show the light source from above.

I love irisis. I think I would go along with Patricia. Maybe a bit too mjuch ov drawing inside the line. Just sofen the irs and make put a little dark in the leaves. Use the darkest color as your beginning point and get lighter. Although if you were to start this drawing you’d go begin from light to dark. But, I love what you have done.
