Flushed

20 x 24"

Irises are one of my favourite flowers and this one was in the garden of the B&B where we choose stay on visits to Victoria. Having painted the yellow 'standards' and lilac 'falls', I hesitated. My intuition said "use a deep red for the background." Scary? You bet! So I printed off the half-done image and threw on some deep red watercolour around it......mmmm. Pretty hot-looking. Here's the finished product, plus a light fine spray of pink dye which pulled it all together - hence the title.
