Garden Iris-Ladies in Waiting.

Watercolour on 140 lb. Arches cold press. This was painted using mainly the negative painting method and the suggested palette of Lian Quen Zhen. He used Chinese inks so the results did vary, but I did appreciate his technique and the overall effect. I enjoy painting iris as they, like lilies, posses such grace, fludity and beauty like the ladies of the queen's court.
