Watercolor Wednesday: Watery Iris

Watery Iris/watercolor/ 5.75" x 5"/ Gifted
This small study was painted by wetting the area to be painted, then dropping individual thinned paint colors into the drying puddle.
The colors used were mostly transparents: aureolin yellow, permanent rose, cobalt blue, scarlet red and sap green. Some indanthrone blue was added for a deeper dark in the end.
