Purple Iris

workspace watercolor purple iris


I wanted to paint iris flowers for two reasons.  The purple iris is the flower of my daughter’s sorority and secondly I had just seen the Van Gogh Irises at the Met.  Luckily a local florist had the stems in stock.  I took a lot of photos to work up the sketch, but the most useful was having the blooms right on my work table.
