Watercolour 29×29cm W and N Artists watercolours on 140lb cold press paper.

The irises that I’ve been working on for a while. I gave up on this but brought it back from oblivion by putting in a different background and now it’ll do. Loosely based on an area of my garden in May, Iris time.

I’m a watercolour artist and art tutor from Nottingham, UK. I love painting flowers particularly and sharing techniques with others as I really rate this wonderful medium. I have written two watercolour tips and techniques books which demonstrate the way I like to use watercolour.

    Ann, this is GORGEOUS!!! You’ve so perfectly gotten the colors, textures, and blending of the irises! And the negative painting of the leaves in the background is superb! A real winner in every respect, my friend! ~ Pat

  • Thank you Helette…but you know it’s just marks on paper, with a few disasters along the way, especially with this flower…the most beautiful, but the most challenging!
