Thursday "Stuff"

For the past few weeks...I am slow, aren't I...I have been drawing iris. This top one is the last I did. It is pen and ink and watercolour pencil. I think I like it best. What do you think?
This one is colored pencil, and I like it also, but not as much.
This one is TomBow marker...don't particularly like it, except the colours.
Last weekend we were in Tolar, Texas, with my longest/best friend, Dianne, and her family and some other friends. She plays bass and sings and her husband, Dub, plays guitar, fiddle, and sings. This is one of the songs they sang that day, Carmen. Raf was in the circle, too, on the right, and a friend of Dianne, Keron Vanlandingham, is on the left. There were about 5 other folks there, too.

Your Irises are gorgeous, I like the one with watercolor pencil best too. The colors are more vibrant.

Hi Sioux,

I just saw these pictures over at Flickr. Loved them so much, especially the center rendering.

Beautiful work - you should come up here to my house and do all of my different colors! Check out my latest post to see how they bounced back after the hail!

I think I like the colored pencil best. It's very delicate looking. They are all wonderful. xoxo

Hi Sioux,

Thanks so much for sharing these with us. They are beautiful. I'm with you, though. I love the softened edges of the watercolor pencil best. I think it perfectly captures the quality of light and translucency these gorgeous flowers display. I have a friend whose husband was an amazing watercolorist and he always loved painting irises. Perhaps the ability to capture that quality is why. Thanks again.

Blessings galore,

Kate

P.S. And thanks so much for the Memorial Day Card, too. I meant to say something earlier, and am amiss in not doing so. Have a wonderful day.

Beautiful work. I cannot even begin to think about how much effort you have put into every single flower.
I love and have the utmost respect for all three drawings.
How great that you are able to use different techniques.
I haven't painted for years.I like oil on canvas. There I can easily hide my many flaws.
