Colored pencil drawing of iris study. The idea is based on Jacqueline Gnott's instructional DVD. I was not really please with the background of this drawing. I think it should be darker. I will have to work on Iris's again.

Iris Pencil Drawing

Pencil Drawing 9" by 12"

My study of an iris. The idea and design came from an water color instruction DVD by Jacqueline Gnott. I have purchased several of her instruction DVD's on water color and I am slowly working my way through them. I have not posted very often lately but have been working on these studies. I found the Iris difficult to do and after several false starts these are the results. Still not that pleased with them. The pencil study was ok but the water color one really had me struggling.
