Siberian Iris, Redux

Siberian Iris, Redux.  Watercolor.
10 x 6.5 inches.
Spring is sprung in Cincinnati, and the flowers are starting to bloom.  Each and every spring, I get caught in the iris.  It's hard to resist these flowers.  They seem to float.  You can see last year's painting here, and then one from last January here.

The best part about this painting, is that it's on hot press paper (Fabriano 300 lb) and there is not anything but watercolor.  I am going to conquer the hot press, thank-you very much.

Phthalo blue red scale, hansa yellow medium, and quinacridone pink--all by Daniel Smith.
