There were 5 Iris blossoms on this beautiful tall stalk. Yesterday I found it laying on the ground broken, so I brought it inside to paint. This is painted on 1/2 sheet of watercolor paper. 30x11inches. I just started right in with the paint, no preliminary drawing. Iris are one of my favourite flowers. They look so exotic!
This was a very quick 5x7 watercolor sketch of the same Iris.
