Purple Iris – Daily Painting

March 16th, 2007

Purple iris 4″ x 6″ – watercolor on 140# paper with colored pencil accent

SOLD

Spring is almost here, and although the irises in my yard haven’t bloomed so far, I rummaged around in my files of photos I took last year and found this one to work from. I admit to being an iris fancier as well as a mum grower, and I like to collect different varieties. Descanso gardens has an annual spring plant sale and that’s often a good place to get irises which have been divided out of their huge iris garden.

  1. That’s beautiful – I love the colours! I’m another iris fan, though I never had much success growing them, and I wouldn’t dare attempt to draw one!

  2. This is absolutely beautiful. I love bearded iris, especially the blues and purples. I’m waiting for mine to bloom. I marvel at what you are able to do with watercolor!
