Color Drop Irises

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.

A fresh drop of color is very welcome on this dreary, sunless day. I love irises. Thank you for sharing them.

Your irises are just beautiful. It looks like you and purple will eventually conquer the tug of war. You and flowers and color and ink are such a combination made in heaven.
