Rebecca's Irises


While my irises at home are barely buds, 80 miles south of me, Rebecca has been filling her vases with these purple beauties for the last week. This week I sketched one of her smaller arrangements (on sketch paper).

Love your iris! I miss Tennessee where you saw them all the time...being the state flower and all. And this year Texas is go dry, even bulbs are having a hard time coming up!

Really nice - are you using colored pencils/watercolor pencils?

Lovely irises, Lin, and I love how you captured the glass texture on the vase.

Laura said...

Absolutely elegant, my friend!

Lin, Beautiful Iris', and a challenge to paint. You have done a great job. I love them too. Mine are also blooming now as well, but when ours are done, yours will be starting and we can envy you.

Breathtaking Lin. Absolutely. :o)

Lin, All of your watercolour flower studies are just beautiful! I love the intensity of colour in this and the pansies, and also the delicacy of the apricot/pink blossom. Really beautiful.

I miss my iris show in the spring also... back home in New York.

I like the curvy movement of the leaves that you achieved! Good job!
