Progress Silk Irises

Here is this painting another 2-3 hours into it. Then, a large spill of deep blue dye required a major clean up before more progress on this piece.

More deep blues and the flowers are gradually being added. After this is painted, it has to dry 24 hours before the dyes are steam set for 3 hours. Then, the silk is positioned onto canvas and permanently fixed in place.
