White Iris

6 1/2″ x 4 1/2″ Watercolor, colored pencil and graphite

I like the composition of this piece…white objects are hard to deal with! I think that I probably left a little too much of the paper in sections, as there is very little in the image that is really that stark. I have another “white” flower in progress… the one with the bee, I may have to abandon this and move on to more color for a little while. I am having trouble with the casein, really need to keep it blocked out more and experiment with laying color blocks and see how drawing over that works out. Right now I have 3 other pieces going and I need to commit to one of them!
