Dutch Iris Painting

I was browsing through some projects that I have started but not yet finished, and decided to finish this little painting of Dutch Iris -- one of my favorite flowers. The blue-purple palette is a nice change from the warm reds and yellows of the plumeria. I had fun doing it. 

It is painted on an Italian paper that I have never used, and I loved the soft surface texture. The handling quality is also nice -- relatively easy to lift, not so prone to damage. Must give it another try...
