"Mid-May Iris" by Carol Thompson

Mid-May Iris

"Among all the Spring flowers, perhaps this lovely, delicate orchid colored isis could be overlooked.  But when a gentle breeze stirs the standards and a tenderly sweet fragrance drifts to you, you will definitely notice this 'Mid-May Iris'."

Artist comment:  "In my yard in Olympia, I had a nice iris garden.  The colors ranged from white to black with these soft blue-lavender mid-May iris blooms in the center of the spectrum.  I used watercolor on Arches 140 # hot pressed paper.  After sketching the blooms, I washed in a warm background color, then carefully layered the leaves, finishing with the detail of the flowers.  While the paint was still wet, I incised the detail with the sharp handle of my brush."
