Iris studies


These are some studies that I did of a beautiful iris plant this summer. I was trying to work on the form of the leaf and bud and also played around with some detailed studies of the petals.

I wanted to see what I could do with colored pencil as well as some ink.

  1. Thanks! It’s great to try just doing one part of a plant. I sometimes try to do too much at once, and nothing turns out quite like I want. Focusing on one section of a plant (leaf or petal, etc.) can really help.

  2. very nice and neat looking Carol, I like that you tried 3 different approaches (mediums) with the same petal on the same drawing. It really makes the differences stand out! congrats on starting your blog!
