Iris - Coloured Pencils - 1 by xXNami-sanXx Iris - Coloured Pencils - 1 by xXNami-sanXx
This is the first of the two coloured pencil studies of the Iris flowers. My scanner kinda destroyed the colours and made the piece look a little "grainy". Sorry about that. ^^;

I love it! The thing you complain about, with scanning, is perfectly normal No, I disagree! , but this is absolutely stunning anyway. And don't mind too much about the flower: the flower may die, but if you remember to wet the ground around the bulb (is it the correct name?), probably a new one will come and bloom this spring. Then, the bulb keeps alive during the winter, even if you don't see it :)

I really appreciate your comment! Thank you very much!! :tighthug:
That's great advice, thanks! I don't understand much about flowers, so this was very helpful! :giggle:
I think the problem of not being able to find the flower anymore may be related to my gardener, well, his apprentice to be precise. Sometimes the apprentices get confused and pull out flowers instead of weeds. The gardener apologised when this happened to some of our other flowers. ^^;

I'm astonishe for 3 reasons:
1 - you have a gardner and an apprentice too! Do you live in a castle? Congrats!
2 - your apprentice gardner is ... I don't like to be offensive! A flower is a flower, iris is a flower that's very popular for its lovely beauty and its refined smell!!!
3 - your art: I love it :love:

Thank you! :aww:
Irises are beautiful, aren't they? I had to buy one specifically for this and I planted it in my garden after, but I think it died rather quickly. ^^;

Aww, thanks again! :hug:
