Purple Irises

8x5 watercolor, ink and collage on paper finished today.  Yesterday I drew these glorious purple irises, aka flags, which grow in my side studio yard.  After the ink line with Micron 01 pen I collaged sentences from a novel for all the white or lightest value areas, then painting was last.  Today was spent correcting values and adding iris veins in most of the petals.
