favorite subject

One of my favorite flowers..the iris. I've painted a ton of them over the years...purple, violet, teal, lilac, yellow, white, etc.. They have those delicate almost see-through blossoms and then that angular, sharp leaf. If you want to do some negative painting...the foliage of the iris is just perfect.

What a gorgeous watercolor! Your technique is impecaable, the results just beautiful! The nude was well-done too. Oh to have some of your talents!
