Rainbow Girl, the title because it is one of the more colorful pieces I've done. The Iris itself with lots of Alizaren and Gamboge. For the shadowed areas I added Permanent Violet Reddish to the Alizaren, which made for a nice effect. All set off very nicely with the mostly Permanent Green #2 and Lamp Black background. Lots of very fine detail work on the petals.
You can feel the touch of fall in the air. I am hoping to get a trip to the Chicago Botanical Garden before the weather comes in. It's such a lovely place. I am also thinking about attempting the photo of Lake Michigan I posted yesterday, in watercolor. Stay Tuned.....
