Dutch Iris: watercolour painting by Kay Craig, 2001 [5 of 17]

Dutch Iris
I painted this because I just love the purple colour. I picked it early in the morning and by the end of the next day I had finished painting it. The Dutch iris is a cross between I. xiphium from Spain and I. tingitana from North Africa. It is very easy to grow and comes in a lovely range of colours. This one is called Purple Sensation.
