Artist's description:

This is yet another work of art depicting bearded irises! I LOVE these flowers!

Every year around April/May there are certain locations around the city where I live that I must visit, because I know where the bearded irises will be! Different colours, some in parks others in places least expected. This piece depicts my favourite colour of them all, which is the very deep purple, almost black.

This is a mixed media drawing which I have created using water soluble media and dry coloured pencil. It is essential to apply a layer of water soluble media such as watercolour pencil, or sometimes I use Derwent Inktense blocks, in order to achieve a wet layer which can be worked upon. It results in intensity of colour and richness. The final dry layer of coloured pencil is achieved by using quality coloured pencils that are rich in pigment, which is then burnished to pull the marks and colours together. It is a process which is most absorbing....

Materials used:

water soluble media, coloured pencils
