I took many photos last weekend in my sisters garden and thought this would be such a fun flower to paint.

My favorite part of this painting was scraping lines in it with a dip pen. You can use a cut up piece of credit card or toothpick for this as well but the pen was really nice to hold. Watch the video and paint along!

  6. Hi Lindsay, I ordered a nib pen today. I want to try this beautiful iris. One flower that you don’t have in your Watercolor Flower Workshop is a dahlia. I painted a red one for my friend’s birthday (she grows the big dinner plate dahlia and loves the color red). I thought about the instructions you posted for the succulent lesson in May and found a picture online that I used as a reference. I’m happy with the result.
    Thanks for all of your inspiring posts and YouTube videos.
