  1. Hi Lindsay, 🙂
    BEAUTIFUL! Thank you for sharing your many talents.
    Wishing you and your family a MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY, HEALTHY AND PROSPEROUS 2017.
    Take care.


  2. This is a beautiful painting. My neighbor gave me a big bunch of lilies to plant. I was so excited to have flowers in my yard. But when they grew, I had a beautiful bed of irises, not lilies! I was so excited because I love irises.


  3. Loved this Lindsay! That side loading for adding the shadow along the ruffled petals made such a fantastic difference. Thank you for sharing your time and many talents!


  4. Hi Lindsay…Another 10 star video. I am really enjoying the water color videos…your techniques are so helpful. I am working on a few last minute Christmas cards, using some Christmas scene stamps. I am learning about shading…Again thanks for all your great tutorials and tips and techniques…Merry Christmas…


  5. Hi Lindsay! I was referred to you by a Sherpette when I asked for info on use of watercolor pencils. I love iris and found this video which aided immensely. I still got too much water in a couple places, but overall I’m pleased with it. I love the way we can “mix ‘n match” the techniques using the pencils! Thank you!!! 🙂
