"Sugar Plum" by Carol Thompson

"Tall bearded irises are standard summer fare in my garden.  This two-toned violet confection reminds me of "sugar plum" treats."

Artist comment:  "This perfect iris keeps returning every year in even greater glory than the year before.  I must say, this one is the most faithful iris in my garden.  Is it any wonder that I chose to paint her?  I sketched the blooms onto 140# hot-pressed watercolor paper in a reverse 'S'.  In an impressionistic manner, I painted the background to suggest an early morning scene.  Then I painted the blossoms in layers, carefully rendering them with delicacy yet with depth of color.  Finally the leaves were filled in keeping true to the natural look of the garden when leaves are turning brown or are attacked by some 'critter'."
