"Dew Drops" by Carol Thompson

"The sun has risen on a perfect spring day.  The 'dew drops' have formed on the delicate petals of a lavendar colored iris in the yard.  What a nice way to start your day."

Artist comment:  "One of the most prolific of the many irises in my garden is this softly lavender colored beauty.  Not only does she honor me with multitudes of flowers, but they last longer than any of the other irises.  In this watercolor, I sketched a triangle composition with the largest bloom at the top in the natural manner of growth of the plant.  I used 140# hot-pressed paper and carefully sketched the composition, keeping in mind balance and good design, while holding true to the nature of the iris.  The leaves at the bottom, anchor the weight of blossoms.  As a finishing touch, I formed drops of water on some of the petals, giving the painting the feel of a fresh new morning".
