If so, you might enjoy these blue irises that recently finished blooming. Even though it didn’t seem likely, I couldn’t stop trying to capture their unique loveliness with my pen and paint. They’re gone now, but should return again and again, for us to see their rich intense beauty.
This one, the “messiest”, which I drew using the flower’s shadows, just happens to be my favorite.
Do you have a favorite?
Trying to decide if I should switch out any of my current blues (lunar, prussian and pthalo).
I think they’re all lovely! No wonder palettes need so many wells! Ah, but for now, I will stay with my tried and true blues. This page will be a good reference in the future.
