Art Materials Live. It is on show from 3 - 6th of November 2011.
I painted it in watercolour using sketches and photographs taken at Ness Botanic Gardens. It took a long time to paint as there are so many raindrops.

The above paintings are two of four that have been selected to be shown at the Williamson Art Gallery.
While I was visiting Ness Gardens, I came across this beautiful Iris. I was particularly drawn to the strong contrast of light and shadow. I felt it would make an interesting painting. I painted this in watercolour.
I was at a local garden centre admiring the plants. It had just stopped raining and the sun came out. I had my camera with me so could not resist taking photographs. I painted this picture in watercolour and gouache.
