White Irises


I painted this today for a project in WatercolorWorkshop, a Yahoo group for watercolor artists. The object of this project was to paint something white without using white paint, and to see how many colors could be found in a "white" object. For my irises I used cobalt blue, permanent rose, burnt sienna, permanent yellow, and a little scarlet lake in the centers.

Just superb! I have just invested in some watercolours and am longing to find the time to learn how to use them. Seeing work like this is so inspiring!

Wow!!!this must have been quite a challenge,to paint a white flower without actually using white.I can't even begin to imagine how you must have done that,and that too,with such fantastic results!
