These are more color drop flowers where I start with a basic shape with water (lightly tinted yellow so I can see it) and drop in the color. You are pretty much at the mercy of the watercolor but you can move it around to help form the shape. The green Iris did much better than the purple one. I added a thin black outline to further form the shape. For my inspiration I was looking at a black and white outline of Irises that I had in a Dover coloring book of flowers. It helped me with the shapes although the purple one really didn't want to cooperate quite as well. As you know purple and I don't really gee and haw too well.
