For Sale - Please ask for Details

I do love Irises. I never get tired of painting them. This is a watercolour painting using a fair amount of wet-in-wet. I also dropped water into the paint on the petals to create the highlights. It works a little better if you want to hold onto the stronger values. I then used a mask (tracing paper) to cover everything except the background and finished the painting by spraying a fine layer of white gouache using a very hold soft toothbrush.
