"Midnight" by Carol Thompson


"Think of the darkest of dark nights when there is no moon.  This enchanting iris captures the mystery and intensity of a blue-black 'midnight'."

Artist comment:  "Midnight is not the "official" name of this black iris.  It is the title of the painting done with watercolor on 140# hot-pressed paper.  I grow this beauty in my garden and it never fails to reward me with multitudes of large blossoms, year after year.  I sketched three of the blooms in a modified "C" composition with the largest as a base to weigh the subject, with the two remaining flowers in stages of fullness.  I paid special attention to the layering of color to obtain the result of deep rich intensity yet maintaining a look of delicacy in the petals".
