Bearded Iris Flowers and Bees Original Watercolor and Ink by Ginette Callaway

Bearded Iris and Bees

12 inches by 9 inches Watercolor & Ink on Watercolor Paper

It's raining outside here in Georgia. I am inside by a nice window watching raindrops fall and dreaming of spring. 

How I create my watercolor & ink paintings: "I first do most of the ink work. I do not pre draw anything. I go straight to work with various nib sizes and dipping ink. The objective is to be loose and painterly. After establishing the ink lines I use watercolor to create shadow and light and vibrant colors, I work in layers. There is no erasing whatsoever, so everything even inks droplets that may fall are part of the art. Incidentals like ink drops are some of my favorite parts. Finally I add more ink lines to enhance certain areas in the painting. I then sign in ink and voila!"
