Japanese Iris - TIF Completed



I finished this today; it's pretty if you like purple! Actually, I like the design very much; my only contribution to that was using Adobe Illustrator to make it oval instead of the original round because I wanted a rectangular finished product. The distortion of the flowers is very slight and of course they're stylized anyway. The colors work well together actually, except that I got the placement of light and dark stems exactly opposite from what they should be to give an effect of shading--next time I'll think more.

I love it! Purple iris is our Tennessee state flower, so it just wouldn't be right to me if it wasn't purple.
