Iris#1



A watercolor ATC size from a ref. image on Flickr by Gailf548. Late January, I sign up another art card exchange project called "25VarietyOf?". I decide to do 25 cards of Iris flower. I love gardening and Iris is one of my favorite flowers and I also name my daughter after it. Since January, I little by little get 10 cards done and delivered so far. This is the first one of the series with the most vibrant and bang. I put all my effort equally to all the cards but for some reason, I feel that this one is not just the first to kick of this project but also release the most of my art energy. This one went to my friend, Rose in Florida. I hope i can keep up my art energy through out this series.

This one has a lot of "bang" to it, but the other ones you've posted on WetCanvas are super too! You do such a great job on flowers!!

Beautiful Iris Ai! I also love iris and grow many of them in my garden. They are all getting ready to bloom, some have started already. I love your strong colors in these.

Yes, I too think this is one of your best ever. The strong colours and delicate lines make such a striking combination.
