Blue Bearded Iris

Size: ACEO (2.5 X 3.5 inches)
Medium & Support: Watercolor on 140lb Arches

I had once read that the word iris means “rainbow”,  it was named after a  Greek Goddess who is considered the messenger of love and uses the rainbow to travel. In this  painting I have tried to capture the spirit of this beauty...the space and atmosphere around the flower ... and the  luminosity and softness of the petals ...

Hope you like it!
