"Two Toned Purple Iris" by Carol Thompson

Two Toned Purple Iris

"'As pretty as a picture', you may say when you see two toned purple isises as they open to May breezes and fill the air with hauntingly sweet fragrances."

Artist comment:  "'A picture is worth a thousand words' is an old adage.  That being said, this watercolor painting on Arches 140 # hot pressed paper is a valuable sight indeed.  I like painting flowers.  It brings me back in memory to the joy of growing beautiful things.  When preparing this rendering, I sketched in the subject, then washed in a non-objective background.  I carfully modeled the leaves and buds, then articulated the full beautiful blooms."
