Purple Iris

Pastel over watercolor - this is more "realistic" than I usually do but it was an interesting challenge. "Realistic" flowers are more difficult to paint than most people realize and doing this took several tries. I had to find a good enough image to draw and then, transfer the outlines to watercolor paper, draw it again and work very carefully not to muddy the colors.

Can't wait until the real ones appear. You've captured their translucence very well. Beautiful!
