Rainy Saturday- Perfect Time to Stay in and Paint


IRIS 2, originally uploaded by kquilts.

Autumn is definitely here and it has turned cold and rainy. A perfect day to stay in and paint, so that is what I did. I painted a little exercise in negative painting, which I'm not sharing here. Not great results with that. While it was drying I painted this little iris. Iris' are my favorite flower and I have wanted to learn to paint them well. This was my first attempt at it with watercolor.
Done on Arches cold press paper- 140 lb. 5 1/2" x 7 1/2"

I finished the afternoon off by making a big pot of chili for dinner. Wish I had the ingredients here to make cornbread to go with it!

Great iris, Karen! It is definitely getting chilly, isn't it? Hope you enjoyed that pot of chili...
