Contemporary Irises


8x5 watercolor, ink and collage on sketchbook paper. I drew these glorious purple irises, aka flags, which grow in my side studio yard. After the ink line with Micron 01 pen was done, I collaged sentences from a novel for all the white or lightest value areas, then painting was last. Then I spent some time correcting values and adding iris veins in most of the petals.
C&C welcome

Beautiful. I really like the colors, and the use of text for the lights works brilliantly.

Re: Contemporary Irises

Kay:
The whole piece glows, like it is backlit. How did you achieve that, by using transparent watercolors?
