Watercolor - Iris

May 08, 2012
How much i love Irises, they are such fabulous flowers that come in variety of colors. They grow in different climates, from cold mountains to grassy meadows, and they are great subjects for painting!

and here is a monochrome painting, using a negative approach to add a little more interest to it.

Iris Shadows

by the way, did you know that "Iris" is the Greek word for rainbow?

  1. Although only one color is used it looks really nice.

    This technique should look cool with Roses too.

  2. Hi Jamie, Thanks for your comment.

    I agree, Roses must turn out quite nice too...I actually may try to paint some roses with same technique in near future;)
