White Iris and Citrus

7.5x11 watercolor on Arches 140 lb cold press paper/Daniel Smith paints.  Last week in Jan Fabian Wallake's design class at Watercolor Art Society-Houston (WAS-H), we were to draw fruit and flowers in a contemporary manner then paint it.  Emphasis was on elements and principles of design, negative painting, and overall improvement of our existing methods.  With this one, I used flat floating shapes with contour line and uneven negative spaces between each part.  A fun yet thoughtful exercise to shake up your composition if it is in a rut.
