Bonus Daily Post: Student Work

These are my favorite irises, bearded irises. I did this as a student, so it doesn't really count as "new work" which is why you get two posts today. The original drawing is pretty huge and done from life, about 24x30 or so. Now I'd just rather draw from photos in my studio and not be damp, though I still occasionally take a sketchbook with me when I travel. I drew this in pencil and inked it at home in crow quill.

  1. My mother used to love to draw flowers. Especially irises and day lilies and spider lilies in our back yard.

    She was a natural talent at that and got really quite good at it, using color chalk/pencils.

    But, ultimately, she didn't stay with it and sort of gave up on it all. It gave her and us a lot of pleasure, tho.
