Iris. lydia Host daily

I painted these irises with Mary Elizabeth on the weekend. Check her blog out and see her result...its great! I have been reading a book on color theory, and the idea I was pondering was complimentary color themes in a painting. I asked Mary Elizabeth if she considers her palette in that way for each painting, for I consider her to be a master colorist, and indeed her answer was 'yes' of course. I personally have been guided by the reality before me and instinct when choosing color, which results in an inconsistent result. Ha! I learned something important that will surely improve my paintings. Best, Lydia
