We have irises scattered over our yard. Of all of the ones we have, this is my favorite color. My DH picked 4 for me today, so I had to paint one. It's much better than the one I painted last year (here). However, it was even better before I decided the lower right petal needed to be darkened (watercolor is so touchy!). But all in all, I'm quite pleased with it.
This is also for the Sketchbook Challenge (current month's theme Can't Resist This) because irises are one of my favorite flowers - I can't resist them!
