Carrying on with last week's theme. that is exploring some different techniques with watercolour, I decided to get into our little plot where we have a few flag irises in bloom and use them as the basis for my painting.
Essentially I used lots of colour much of it wet in wet and then splashed it with other colours and water with a few areas acquiring a little salt. The blooms themselves were left for a more restrained approach and I've reached the point where I want to leave it alone for a while. I think there is work to be done in terms of further modelling on the flowers and maybe one of two additions to increase the counterchange in parts.
A fun day with a little learned about the techniques in use.
