Butter and Sugar Iris

Butter and Sugar
14x20"

This is the latest in my iris series. Yellow is a very difficult color to work with in watercolor. How do you make it vibrant enough without it becoming heavy? Plus it can get tainted by another color very easily.
I am pleased with the result however.
