Purple Iris (Watercolor Painting)

Regular price $200.00

A hand painted purple-black iris sitting fresh with dew contrasts nicely with the plain white background.

This piece was done in watercolor and pencil on rag paper, measuring 7"x11", and signed and dated by me in pencil on the back. Edges are rough and ragged (as opposed to straight/even, sharply cut ones). This is a one-of-a-kind original painting done from a photograph that I took myself. This photo was taken in my mother's flower garden early one summer morning. This is one of my favorite paintings...I love the velvety texture of the petals and the way the different flavors of purple blend in and out of the flower. I also love the contrast between this dark robust bloom and the bare white background. This is one of my favorite paintings! <3 <3 <3
