Journal 1989/2015: Irises (part 2)
My colored pencil and ink drawings of irises were much more successful than the painted ones. I still like the 1989 version (above left) the best of all. The one I did recently was at the end of the day; I even wrote “tired” at the bottom. It’s not as delicate, but still seems iris-like.
I also did pencil without ink; on the left, in the normal way, and on the right I took out a flower and drew it upside-down.
Then I did one just in ink. The ink drawing was all done with my quill dip pen.
