Iris Bouquet 2

I used one of my line drawings from 1983 for this. (Photocopied the line drawing, then colored it.) The bouquet was from my garden. In real life, the iris were the old-fashioned purple type, and I think the other flowers were spirea (red-violet with green leaves.)

For some of the iris flowers, I used "splotching through paper" for the mottled effect.

Edited Dec. 2009: Click on the "iris" label, below or in the label list to the right, to see a later version with softer coloring, and also the original line drawing.
